I live in Moline and only go to entertain my granddaughter. She loves sitting behind the wheel of the combines, tractors and loaders. I have a hard time getting her to leave. Great variety of equipment from antiques to the newest farm and construction equipment. Adults and children will enjoy this. I usually average an hour to an hour and... More

All in one place of John Deere's equipment and vehicles. Best part is, we can touch and feel vehicles through demo systems.

Looking for a cheap way to spend a hot day with kids? The Pavilion is free and allows children to climb into the tractors, combines and other equipment. My boys still talk about it often!

Great place for the whole family. Activities for young and old. My how farming has changed! Huge gift shop and remember, you're paying for the name. A bit pricey.

Since we don't live on a farm, seeing these machines up close and personal was amazing. My kids had a great time climbing on them and sitting in them. Even I climbed in and was amazed by what these machines are like. It's fun to get some hands-on experience when you otherwise just look from the outside.

We did not enjoy this place at all. I have more fun on the farm than here. Or going to a farm show, just anywhere but here. I do not recommend anyone to go out of there way to see this place. I was not impressed with the store, either. Save your time, go to a farm show and farm... More

This is a cool museum like display of just a few pieces of Machinery along with various displays and simulators that showcase the history and Technology of John Deere. I went during the week mid day and it was not busy at all, and got to talk with a several of the workers, who were all really friendly and very... More

This was a destination stop for our road trip. My wife is from a John Deere farming family and we wanted somewhere to stop on the way to the national parks. Farming history was interesting and the tractors were fun to climb all over. The only improvement I would like to see is more antique dark equipment. A progression of... More

Moline is my hometown and one of my grandfathers retired from John Deere so I have ALWAYS had a spot in my heart for that company. That being said this is a beautiful building and a great place to visit no matter what your age! There are workers (or volunteers???) that will give you a tour if you want and... More

Excellent place to visit! Very educational! Grandchildren were totally engrossed! Loved getting up on the equipment on the display floor! Video is very informative and I suggest watching that with the children.
