I was drawn to this place by the reputation of the John Deere Company. I was definitely not disappointed: a very well set up display of the John Deere Company products, an informative description of the company history, and knowledgeable and helpful (retired) employees.

My African friend had her picture taken "driving" a combine! She was so impressed at the size of the equipment and at how we plant and harvest our crops in the Midwest.

It's a great way to spend 30 mins to an hour getting a brief history of the corporation as well as allow the kids some fun time playing on the display tractors and combines. There is also a gift shop with plenty of John Deere gifts, souvenirs, and memorabilia for the whole family.

While on a motorcycle trip with a friend along the Mississippi river we stopped at the John Deere Pavilion in downtown East Moline. It's an indoor project display of some of the massive machinery they make and an explanation of the company's origins. Besides the large machinery you can climb on, there are simulators for operating a bulldozer and a... More

Was so great to see all the equipment and learn what they are used for, especially in different parts of the world. Fun things for the kids to do as well and a big plus was all they learned! Would highly recommend this place.

The Pavilion offers a chance to experience large scale equipment up close and has interesting interactive educational displays. When we take visitors here, they always enjoy the experience. The Pavilion has a children's area and allows for youngsters to climb on the equipment.

Brigitte T, Manager at John Deere Pavilion, responded to this review

I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed. It is unfortunate that you missed seeing ducks hatching at the time of your visit. We had eggs hatching throughout the 3 day event. Hopefully you enjoyed the 25 plus ducklings that you could learn about and pet during the educational encounters. Please feel free to call me to discuss this in... More
