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...More

You don't have to be a farmer to be interested in tractors. You only need to like to eat. Modern high production farming would be simply impossible without tractors, and with over 300 million mouths to feed in this country alone, tractors are essential. This...More

Very nice small museum that tells the history of why Nebraska requires the testing of all tractors being sold in Nebraska. Very nice collection of antique tractors that the Ag engineering students helped rebuild and maintain. Must see if you enjoy the history of tractors.

If you like old tractors, don't miss this place. Allow at least 2 hours, more if you're a reader. If it's open, right next door is the University's new tractor test lab. Very educational.
