What a gem! A perfect outing for the whole family. This beautiful museum features a wide variety of historical tractors, antique trucks and farm equipment. There is a lot to see and experience. A great location near the freeway, and friendly staff.

Are there ever docents on hand to answer questions? I have been to the museum three times now and have never seen anyone other than the woman at the front desk. The evolution of the tractors is fascinating and my guests and I have had many questions about unfamiliar technology tried and abandoned in the early development.

Surprised by the extensive the collection. Great time wandering about. The docents were well informed and very pleasant.

About Heidrick Ag History Center


The nonprofit Heidrick Ag History Center harvests the rich history of agricultural machinery and transportation through an extensive collection of vintage tractors and trucks. The 130,000-square-foot space houses both the Hays Antique Truck Museum—home to such artifacts as a one-of-a-kind Breeding steam-powered truck and broccoli steamer from 1916—and the Fred C. Heidrick Antique Ag Collection, an assemblage of olden-day iron horses and golden cows collected over a period of 60 years.

Using skills acquired from his childhood days building his own planes and combines from scraps of wire and wood, Mr. Heidrick himself restored most of the equipment—some of which was formerly little more than heaps of rust—to its original condition. Palettes of green, red, and yellow pop from John Deere tractors from the 1930s to the 1950s, a Deering reaper machine from 1891, and a 120-horsepower Holt built in 1917 to tow artillery during World War I.
