“A good range of old tractors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

This collection provides a good, up close view of tractors over the past century. A museum volunteer will likely add much to your knowledge of these essential farm machines.

“My Dad would have loved this!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I grew up on a farm, and all I could think of at every tractor was "wow, Daddy would have loved this place..." They had tractors of every manufacturer and era that you could possibly imagine and then the collection of hand tools is also really interesting also. Don't forget to visit the laboratory where they actually do the testing and see the huge equipment they use to test the tractors. It is amazing! Really a very interesting and educational trip for people of all ages, but especially for anyone who lives on or grew up on a farm.

“Interesting Little Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Located on the University of Nebraska East Campus. The museum houses about 100 tractors going back over 100 years. Right next to the museum is the school's tractor testing track. No tractor manufacturer will put a tractor on the market until the University of Nebraska tests it and issues a rating.
