I am not sure you will get a chance to visit the John Deere Headquarter. But the building was very old but maintained very well. You will not find that it is a old construction. You will get to know how it has started in 1837.

Where else can you sit in the drivers seat of a half million dollar combine? Great interactional exhibits and much to learn about the pressing need to fill the bellies of all the people who will be living on planet earth in the near future. Go and learn about a company in tune with trying to solve these very real... More

First, it was 1999 that I was here. The Realtors Land Institute had a supper In one of the main halls. Coming from Virginia I had not seen much of the large equipment. It was a magical setting where so felt transposed to my childhood. The equipment here helped feed a nation and a world. I feel it is a... More

If you like to see a mix of old and new implements this is the place. The John Deere story is worth the time. John Deere was the Mayor of Moline back in the day I'm told. Tractors and Heavy equipment abound.

Man, woman and child will enjoy looking at all of the equipment and artifacts on the display floor. Warning...take popcorn or bread if you want to get your kids to leave. A promise to feed the swans, ducks and geese when they are done driving combines, tractors and road graders will get them out of the door.

The John Deere World Headquarters is one of the Quad Cities most known locations. This location is placed in the middle of the woods with a private pond and beautiful walkways. The facility houses many unique pieces of machinery that represent everything that John Deere is and has grown to be. You can view all the machines on the display... More

By giving this attraction an average rating, I don't want to down-grade it. This is a display area for their farm and forestry equipment. It was interesting in it's own right, but kids would probably have found it "really" interesting. It seems like we should have gone to the Pavilion rather than to the Headquarters.

If you are thinking this is a boring corporate office you will be wrong, way wrong. Absolutely one of the most stunning setting and buildings in the midwest. Great display of products. Until you stand next these machines you have no idea how large they are. Great news - this is free. One of the most visited places in Illinois... More

Neat Experience. The on site guide was retired from John Deere and a wealth of interesting information.
