Tractor Museum expansion in the works for 2024


The American Tractor Museum recently held a groundbreaking ceremony for its expansion project. The expansion project is anticipated to be completed in mid-2024. In attendance for the groundbreaking were the American Tractor Museum’s Board of Directors, the City of Perryville Officials, local businesses, and community members.
The American Tractor Museum houses restored orphan tractors featuring rare manufacturers including Rumely, Waterloo Boy, Indiana, Huber, Plymouth, Avery, Rock Island, Greyhound, Centaur, and many more. This museum contains one of the largest and most unique collections of its kind and celebrates iconic tractors as the backbone of America with some of the tractors on display being over a century old. The American Tractor Museum currently draws visitors from across the state and neighboring states, and visitors have commented that it is the best tractor museum they have visited.

Through donations and fundraising events, the expansion project has come to fruition. Phase one will double the display space of the current museum which will allow all the rare and historical collections to be housed under one roof. Lori Heberlie, the Executive Director of the American Tractor Museum said, “We are excited to be able to share more history and more stories with visitors with this new addition. We are amazed by all the support from the community, and we always look forward to visiting with more people from all over the nation.”
The American Tractor Museum invites everyone to visit their location at 508 North Main St., Perryville, MO 63775. To become a supporter of the American Tractor Museum, you can donate through the website at
