John Deere Pavilion

The John Deere Pavilion offers an up-close look at the company’s global businesses and products, rich history and heritage, and solutions for the challenges of providing food and infrastructure to the world’s growing population. Interactive displays, original artifacts, kid’s discovery zone, and a variety of media engage visitors in a fun and exciting learning environment for the whole family.

Through videos guests hear owners and operators of these machines describe a typical workday and how John Deere equipment helps them work and shape the land. Visitors also see previous concept machines explored by the company, now on display for the first time at the Pavilion. These machines were produced to test and evaluate new technologies and designs, elements of which are now used in current products.

Machine simulators give visitors a chance to try their skills at operating an excavator or crawler dozer in a fun learning environment that looks, sounds, and feels very much like the actual machines when they are in operation. The simulators are the same ones used to train professional operators.
