This is a must see for big machinery aficionados! Lots of equipment here to experience and the Caterpillar story and displays are worth the time to thoroughly enjoy. Family and disability friendly.

One of the best “Earth Moving” equipment that I’ve experienced. By contrast I’ve visited the John Deere Visitors Center in nearby Quad Cities and there’s no comparison if your are a youngster or a youngster at heart. The CAT experience includes a faux ride in the dump of the biggest hauler of them all comparable to a Disney theme park ride. On occasion visitors can make arrangements to visit the nearby Cat Proving grounds.

The museum is small, but my kids enjoyed trying out all of the equipment. My 6yo loved the LEGO section. The simulators were pretty cool & even the adults in the group enjoyed it.

small museum that was definitely not worth the money, looked more like a showroom with sales people than a museum
