  • This isn't your average museum! Your visit begins with a virtual ride in the bed of a massive two-and-a-half story Cat® 797F Mining Truck. Learn how Caterpillar's story began as two companies came together to build Caterpillar on the foundation of innovation and customer focus. Unleash your inner engineer as you design your very own Cat machine. Test your skills on a simulator to see first-hand what it's like to operate equipment the way our operators do, and no visit is complete without climbing in a track-type tractor. Hours of operation are Tuesday – Saturday from 10am-5pm, with last ticket entry at 3:30pm.
