This place has very cool equipment on display and you can climb into the cabs and check out the controls and see how everything works on it. They also used to have a diesel engine on display with parts cut out of it so that you could see the inner workings. :) There are educational videos on the progress of... More

You can't beat a place now a days that let you explore for free. We were immediately greeted at the door by a very kind and helpful volunteer. This place has so many vehicles the kids can climb on and in, and push buttons on the machines. Not only are they learning about farming and the equipment John Deere manufactures,... More

There is a ton to see and do at this little pavilion, you are able to get right on the machines, operate 3 simulators running an excavator or a crawler like you are in the actual machine. Other hands on diagrams are setup to help people unfamiliar with farming or forestry understand how things work!

Went in here with family and I would say it was interesting to see the various tractors and the things that they're working on to do. It was a really good get away from the business of the downtown area and it's free. Can't go wrong with free. With the interactions and more, I would say if you want to... More

I am a mechanical engineer, so I the John Deere Pavilion is right up my alley. There are many Deere vehicles from the beginning of the company to the modern farm and industrial vehicles. The exhibits show the origins of the company from Mr. Deere and how far the innovations that a great American company has done for farming and... More

The John Deere Pavilion is a great way to see some unique farming equipment indoors. I thought the robotic lawnmower was pretty cool and so did the kids. Our kids ranged from 4-13 and everyone had a nice time. I'd allow 60-90 minutes to explore everything.

Check out the equipment our home town John Deere company manufactures. Large equipment on display, plenty of parking and great restaurants nearby. Radisson Hotel across the street and the I Wireless Center is also nearby.
