Very nice small museum that tells the history of why Nebraska requires the testing of all tractors being sold in Nebraska. Very nice collection of antique tractors that the Ag engineering students helped rebuild and maintain. Must see if you enjoy the history of tractors.

If you like old tractors, don't miss this place. Allow at least 2 hours, more if you're a reader. If it's open, right next door is the University's new tractor test lab. Very educational.

This is a very small museum about tractor testing, not what we expected but very well done and the docent was very knowledgeable. A fun stop if you like tractors, they even have fun things for kids.

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.
