The John Deere Tractor and Engine Museum in Waterloo opens to the public next Tuesday, Dec. 2.

Project  Manager Dawn Hendershot says it took four years to plan and renovate the structure which features 19 tractors from different eras and more than two dozen “hands-on “ interactive exhibits. She says “they’ll get to see examples of tractors, the engine design and manufacturing and how the tractors here have had a global impact.”

Hendershot says the 27,000-square-foot museum is located near downtown at the original Waterloo Tractor Works site.  It includes galleries, a 100 seat-theater and a retail store.  A grand opening is set for the spring.
