Excellent showcase of all things Deere. Kids will love the displays and marvel at the scale of the implements. Plenty of facts and features for the enthusiasts, too. Worth a visit and check out the gift shop for anything and everything Deere related.

If you have never stood by a giant piece of farm equipment or logging machines then you must stop by here once. It's interesting and informative. Something anyone from 1-80 can enjoy. Not a lot of walking, air conditioned and it only takes a short amount of time. A good family stop.

I have been here several times and it always proves to be a nice hour or two. The machinery is hands on, it's great fun for the kids and adults, it's historical as well as agricultural. And the people that work here are just so nice :) It's really a MUST SEE for anyone visiting or living the the QC.

John Deere is a mainstay for the Quad Cities, and this pavilion presents visitors with not only some impressive John Deere machinery in the main room (which changes each year), but also the impact it and the company has had on the Quad Cities and the world. Visitors can learn about the entire history of John Deere, which includes how... More

They give guided tours to children, teaching them about the history of John Deere and then show them how things work. There are computer simulations where people try running equipment and many large tractors to climb on. The staff is beyond cordial. It's free and something you shouldn't miss. The only drawback is the parking. It's a little crowded at... More

Enjoyed touring the exhibits and learning of the story of John Deere. The giant tractor was fun to climb into and pretend to drive. The history of agriculture was well told. Enjoyed the gift shop also.

Just a quick 30-45 minute tour of a large room, but what a room! Beautifully and colorfully presented history of John Deere tractors, plows, combines,and other interesting farming implements you wouldn't even think of. Probaly better for adults, but kids will enjoy sitting in the tractor and combine seats. Fun. The gift shop was really cool.
