Go, See, Explore: John Deere Pavilion


(Moline, IL): The John Deere Pavilion is a top tourist attraction in the QCA. A couple years ago, my kids and I first explored the John Deere Pavilion. My son was 5 at the time and was in heaven! His older sisters had an equal amount of fun – despite being less enthralled by tractors as him. They loved the interactive games and learning about the history of John Deere and exploring the museum and immersive exhibits. You can also take a factory tour and play online games.

It’s FREE to visit (year-round) and while it is mostly focused on tractors & other heavy machinery, it also has educational films and tons of fun for kids who love to explore!

The day we went, we rode the Channel Cat from the Iowa side – which dropped us off right by the John Deere Pavilion. We also made a stop in the Village of East Davenport for lunch — it was such a great adventure!
