Spent about 1 hour at the Pavilion. Movie was good. Cool to see the Old tractors along side the new machines. Learned about machines that are use in different countries in the world. No kids with us but kids seemed to love this place. The history of JD is pretty amazing. Large selection of items at the gift shop. I... More

My 6 and 3 year old love this place!!!! We always take a million pictures of them because this place is so fun. Also, they have very nice, clean bathrooms, with a janitor always close by. And you can't leave without shopping at the John Deere store. Great clothing, hats, toys, household items.

For a couple of folks from the coast of Maine, it was eye-opening to see the size of the equipment on display. This is a very well done property.

As someone that has never even sat on a tractor, I didn't know how interesting this would be. The tour guides were very helpful and the videos were fascinating.

This was a highlight of the trip to Moline, especially for our 3 year old. He loved the opportunity to climb around in the various equipment! The kids play area was well kept, the simulators were very interesting, and there were lots of video clips and information signs to keep everyone entertained and educated.

My son is a John Deere nut! We took a road trip to check it out and were not disappointed. He was grinning from ear to ear. He ran around, climbed on everything he could, and played with all the interactive exhibits. The bonus.... It costs nothing to enter! It's pretty awesome!

This FREE exhibit does a nice job of showcasing the John Deere product line, the history of the company, and the challenges of and for agriculture in general. There are training modules where kids of all ages can use simulations to 'load" a dump truck with a large backhoe, for example (more difficult that you'd think). A number of tractors... More
