John Deere Tractor and Engine Museum Aims to Open Doors in June 2013
The John Tractor and Engine Museum in Waterloo, Iowa is on track to open its doors in June 2013, according to a recent WCFCourier article showcasing vintage tractors, engines, and much more.
Currently under construction, the museum will provide a place for visitors to learn the story behind John Deere tractor engines that were developed in Waterloo. It will also feature vintage machines on display, and will give visitors a chance to read and listen to the stories of the people who made the first generation of John Deere farm equipment.
Several exhibitions are expected to be offered at the John Tractor and Engine Museum, including “John Deere into the World,” “Working the Land,” “The Making of a Tractor,” “On the Job,” “Product Spotlight,” and “Spotlight.” Each of these exhibitions aims to inform visitors of the history of Deere in an appealing way.
Project Manager Dawn Hendershot says of the new John Tractor and Engine Museum development, “We are working with our brand management, research and exhibit design and fabrication teams to develop a floor plan and an experience that will be educational, fun and engaging. Our hope is to teach visitors about the design and manufacturing of John Deere tractors and engines in Iowa’s Cedar Valley.”
This summer, residents of and visitors to Waterloo, Iowa will be given the opportunity to become further educated on John Deere products as well as the agriculture industry, which plays a large role in the community.
