If you like tractors and enjoy seeing vintage tractors, this is the place for you. Located on the east campus of the University of Nebraska--Lincoln, this is home the the testing facilities used to certify performance of every tractor model sold in the state of Nebraska. Our volunteer tour guide was excellent and highly informative. The museum is in the original test facility, while the current facilities are just down the hill. Donation recommended.

First of all, the voluteer staff were top notch as they were both informative and kind. The museum itself was a short and sweet adventure if you love learning about the history of Nebraska and farming.

By State Law since 1920, every tractor marketed in Nebraska has to be tested and certified to perform as advertised. The first state to do so and still required for 100+ horsepower tractors, today every state and most countries use the Nebraska data to allow tractor sales. The museum has dozens of old tractors and also test devices from the 1920's. Located on the campus it's a little tricky to find but well worth a visit. Cost is only $5, guides are very good and there's a neat gift shop

Quilt museum staff recommended this place to husband while I was at the quilt museum. He really enjoyed seeing the old tractors and learning information while on the $10 tour. He was the only person there so he had a very personal tour with the knowledgeable guide. He also learned about the Nebraska law that requires all tractor models be tested before they can be sold in NE.

This museum is a lot more interesting than you might expect. It is especially interesting if you are given a guided tour by Don (I think). He is a retired Dean from University of Nebraska and restores old tractors as a hobby. I don’t think there is anything about antique tractors that he doesn’t know.
