This is a great 'day out' for the whole family. There's a live-steam riding railroad for the kids (and not so young!), steam tractors on parade, steam tractors running an old-fashioned wheat thrashing, a steam-powered sawmill, 100s of stationary engines - some small and some HUGE! Kerosene, diesel and gas tractors (even a Porsche tractor - yes!) of all colors (yellow - Caterpillar, red - Massey, green - John Deere, etc. Everyone blows their whistles at 12 noon, then there's a massive parade of tractors (some over 100 years old) at 2 pm. Ride a trolley, see the antique trucks and cars, spend some dollars at the swap meet. - all of this for only $10 for adults! Last weekend of July and first weekend of August. Just west of I-5 at the Brooks exit, just past the May Trucking depot. Other events around the year. See their website. Bring your camcorder and cameras http://www.antiquepowerland.com/

We visited on a Sunday afternoon and the caretakers showed us some of the exhibits. The entrance fee is $5 and is well worth it. Located inside the main office building are radios and other electrical equipment dating back to the early part of the 20th century. There was also an auto in mint condition which dated back to the 1930s as well as large reproductions of farming and logging scenes. There were trucks in two other buildings dating from the present to the 1920s. Old steam tractors were located in another building as well as outside. In yet another building, there were numerous streetcars and trolley cars from Portugal, the UK, Hong Kong, and other places. There's even a reproduction of a gas station dating back decades. This is quite a fascinating museum and takes awhile to visit.
