Larsen Tractor Test & Power Museum: Annual Fall Open House

Bring family and friends to see what is new and happening at The Larsen Tractor Test & Power Museum! Take a hayrack ride around UNL’s East Campus! The Larsen Museum, on UNL’s East Campus, will hold its annual fall open house on Thurs., September 25th,   5:00 – 7:30 pm. The open house is hosted by the Tractor Restoration Club, and there will be free pizza and pop. Visitors can enjoy viewing some of the recent improvements to the Museum, including new displays and a newly restored 1948 John Deere H, which was the Club’s project last school year. The Splinter Gallery in the Museum continues to feature the Craig Cassell exhibit of agricultural drawings.

Country artist Dustin Lynch will be performing the Homecoming Concert on the East Campus Mall at 8:00 pm. 

There is no admission fee. We will be taking free-will donations to benefit the student Tractor Restoration Club. The club welcomes new members who are UNL students. The Museum welcomes volunteers from the community. Enjoy an evening of agricultural history, viewing the tractors and exhibits about tractor testing in the original Nebraska Tractor Test Lab 1919 building.
