The John Deere Pavilion is a great place to visit. They have antique tractors and modern day equipment on display. The modern day equipment has prices displayed. It gives you a real appreciation for the modern farmer's business.

I was drawn to this place by the reputation of the John Deere Company. I was definitely not disappointed: a very well set up display of the John Deere Company products, an informative description of the company history, and knowledgeable and helpful (retired) employees.

My African friend had her picture taken "driving" a combine! She was so impressed at the size of the equipment and at how we plant and harvest our crops in the Midwest.

I have 6 and 9 year old boys and a 14 year old girl. I know the amount of time spent will vary, but, on average, how much time should we allow to visit the Pavillion?
