We take our kids here every year. They like climbing on to some equipment and playing with the interactive toys and games. It's free so definitely worth giving it a chance.

The John Deere Pavilion is very interesting and lots of fun. Located in historic downtown Moline, it's in a very large, attractive, modern, vintage-style building. Inside, there are examples of many kinds of John Deere machinery, ranging from lawn tractors to full-size tractors to a combine. The combine is HUGE - yours for "only" $500K+. Visitors are able to sit... More

This is something for everyone in your family at the John Deere Pavilion. The simulators are a great challenge to see what it is like to operate equipment.

This was a wonderful place to stop and do some learning and exploring. Our kids, aged 2, 3, and 7, as well as ourselves, all enjoyed the Pavilion. All of the combines, tractors, etc are climable and there are tractor simulators. Information is piled onto the walls and in great displays throughout. A friendly guide greeted us and shared the...

I didn't expect it to be very interesting, but it was free. I was pleasantly surprised. The history was interesting, the machines were interesting, and the information about how the John Deere company is preparing for the future was also cool.

The John Deer Pavilion was easily the highlight of a recent trip out to the Quad Cities with my 6 year old son and 4 year old daughter. Both loved being able to climb up into full size combines, tractors, mowers, etc., and sit in the "drivers seat". These aren't partial models or replicas, but the actually equipment with stairs...

First, this place is probably not for everyone. However, for our 2 year-old daughter with a love for lawnmowers, this place was heaven. It was free, which is a big plus too. She was able to climb all over combines and tractors galore. The adults had a good time too having never been on a farm or been able to... More

We had six adults in our party. We all enjoyed JDP. Just walking around and taking in the signs that explained the implements was great. Best of all, there was a couple visiting from Europe and they were given a special tour with a tour guide. The tour guide invited anyone interested in joining the tour. This person, a former... More

Wow, what a great place. It is free and there are lots of tractors/ earthmover machines. They allow kids to sit in many of them. The building is bright and there are great signs and information throughout. Employees were very helpful and friendly. There is a great big gift store full of clothes and toy tractors. I think my grandson... More
