The Lester F. Larsen Tractor Test and Power Museum, at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, is celebrating its fourth anniversary.

The museum is located at 35th and Fair sts., on the NU East Campus.

"We invite the public to come and learn about Nebraska's world-famous tractor tests," said William Splinter, director of the museum.

Splinter said all of the museum's historic tractors will be on display. Museum staff will be available to answer questions about the collection. The Nebraska Tractor Test Laboratory also will show several tractors it is testing, including the new John Deere 9400T.

The mission of the museum is to collect, preserve, research and interpret the history of mechanization of agriculture. The museum has tractors, historic Nebraska Tractor Test equipment, colonial tools and plows and other agricultural implements on exhibit. Other exhibits include the original conservation tillage implements, the sweep plow for grain crops and the till planter for row crops.
