Farm Machinery Roars to Life at Stuhr

GRAND ISLAND, STUHR MUSEUM – Stuhr Museum is celebrating the tools that made life on the prairie possible during our “Farm Machinery Extravaganza” from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 17th.

The event will feature dozens of antique tractors provided by clubs and organizations from Central Nebraska. From the 1930s forward, you will see a fantastic representation of what farm machinery looked like in our recent past, and will get to see it in action. At 2:30, there will be a “Parade of Power,” where the owners of the tractors will take them for a spin through Railroad Town in a procession you can hear throughout the museum’s 200 acres. The day will also feature newer farm machines, created locally at CNH in Grand Island.

While you’re out looking at the antique farm machinery, be sure to visit our summer exhibit “Gears of the Land” in our Antique Farm Machinery Building. The exhibit features hundreds of pieces from harvesters to tractors to automobiles and buggies, a children’s play area and more.

Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for children and free for Stuhr Museum members. For more information, contact the museum at (308) 385-5316.
