Touch the machines. Climb in the cab. Learn. The John Deere Pavilion offers a unique experience for every brand fan who walks through the door. From the vintage machines to today's agricultural, construction and forestry equipment, the past and future are yours to discover. See how these products help to change lives around the world.
And if that's not enough, the interactive Discovery Zone provides hours of learning and fun for kids.
Admission is always FREE.
Tractor, combine, dozer – sit in the cab of some of John Deere's biggest machines. Learn about how they move, how they are built, and how they are making an impact in our world.
Memories. Collect all 179 of them in our legacy area. Learn about John Deere, the man, who used his skills and knowledge as a blacksmith to change farming. And get a sense of how John Deere, the company, continues to innovate today.
The only requirement for kids inside our doors – BE A KID. Climb on board. Pretend you're driving.
For extra excitement, test your skills in our state-of-the-art simulators. Customers train in these before tackling the dirt on the jobsite.
The Pavilion offers tours specially formed for children's groups of all ages. The standard tour is offered year-round and is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes long. For an extra fun and educational component that is available September through May, you may choose between these special tour programs: Scavenger Hunt (1 hr. 40 mins.), Farm to Table (2 hrs.), or History of John Deere and the State of Illinois (1 hr. 40 mins.). As with any tour at our Attractions, it's free!
Right now, seven billion people share this planet. And by 2050, there will be another two billion more mouths to feed. Learn about our commitment to help feed, clothe, and shelter our rapidly growing world.
The Discovery Zone includes eight exhibits offering a variety of hands-on learning activities and interactive technology for all ages. It encourages children to explore the world around us and use their creativity to learn.
But it's not just for kids, parents are always welcome to play.
