My type of visit was actually for school but that wasn't an option. Anyways, it reminded me of my grandpa with the old cars and tractors. There was a lot of random historical stuff from Illinois. It was a really good experience with my classmates!...More

Very pleased with our visit to the Wheels O'Time Museum. At first we thought it was a train museum, but it had much more to offer in farm machinery and cars.
