Tours & Field Trips

Guided Tours 

Your visit will mean more when you walk through 45,000 square feet of museum gallery with a guide.  The wagons, harvesters and tractors each have a story.  Each story teller has a spin based on his or her experience down on the farm, mine, or moving mountains.  Each visit is just like the first time.  Amazing!

Scavenger Hunt

The museum provides a scavenger hunt for all guests.  Please inquire in the lobby.
