Not much to do in Moline, Ill, but this is an interesting place to visit. Located in a very picturesque setting---lush green vegetation, environmentally building, very quiet. If you are here request a tour. Lots of farm equipment, and large farm equipment... Part of Americana... If you have kids they will like this place!

This is a review of the John Deere Pavilion. Looks like the reviews for the headquarters & pavilion are mixed together. First of all, we are a John Deere loving farm family. We always enjoy stopping by the pavilion & gift shop when we are near Moline. It's a nice stop for anyone traveling in the area. The site is... More

It's ok. Nothing worth making a special trip but cool to say you were here. Get a picture and add to your list of places traveled

After we went to the pavilion where went out here. It is a little quieter and more history but the kids can still climb on all the equipment displayed. Spent 1 1/2 hour to 2 just letting the kid move from one piece of equipment to the next. Have great volunteers to help and answer questions.

The John Deere Pavilion was fun. There was a play area for kids and they could go up in the machines and play

Worked here for 15 years. Awesome architecture. Gorgeous grounds. Nostalgic mural. A must see for John Deere fans. But, the John Deere Commons (downtown Moline ) has more to offer if it's equipment you want to see and experience.

From sitting on various farm equipment, to operating simulators, to learning about how agriculture is preparing for the next century, this facility is exactly what it's billed. Thought-provoking film shorts and exhibits were excellently presented.

Situated on a beautiful campus in forested, rolling hills overlooking the Rock River Valley, the main hall is open to visitors and showcases both historical and cutting-edge equipment. Display cases provide extensive memorabilia from the beginning of John Deere through modern times. Visiting John Deere World Headquarters left... More

Beautiful building. There is a variety of exhibits. We often take international guests to the headquarters. It is important to remind younger children to use inside voices as people work in the facility.

even if you are not into agriculture you need to see this building. The architecture is amazing. And to find out it was built in the sixty's just amazed me. It is very pretty and not dated at all. Quite unique.
