If you have an interest in how agriculture and crop production has evolved over the years this museum is well worth a stop in. They have a wide variety of tractors and other equipment that will be of interest. Have taken a number of out of town visitors to the museum including those with no agricultural background as well as... More

This little known museum of tractors and tractor testing lies on the northern side of University of Nebraska's East Campus. It hosts a variety of types of tractors from the earliest to most modern.

My brother dragged me here and am I glad he did. Lots of old tractors on display but the best part is walking into the test lab and having of the of staff give you a class on what they do here. Testing new tractors of every brand is pretty extensive and this is the only place on earth where... More

This is a great little museum hidden on the East campus of the University of Nebraska Lincoln. The people were really friendly and we had a great tour guide. There were activities for kids of all ages and tractors from the beginning of tractors. I would recommend this for anybody even remotely interested in this type of thing. Especially kids!

We took our 2 1/2 year old grandson & mother to the tractor museum. It is located on the university campus and it helped that our daughter had an idea where it was located. There is a little free parking for the museum. There are staff who can answer many questions and give a short tour. This is not a... More

The docents who work here have YEARS of experience with engines and tractors and can help explain to you why the lifestyle you have probably was provided by the tractors around you. They understand the changes in technology of the tractors and the innovations that allowed Nebraska to now contribute up to 20% of the world's grain supply....it helps establish... More

It is very small, if you like learning about trackers, this is the place for you. I liked learning about the building myself, the best.

Dad and hubby dragged us here, but I was fairly entertained. The guy that works there and gives the tour is awesome. He makes the place! This man loves his job. Its a good way to spend some time in Lincoln, esp if you like tractors or Ag history. And it's $3!
