Farmall Tractor Museum

If you are over in this part of Florida and you're bummed out that the Snark Missile in Wildwood is no longer there, check out this place. Did you ever see a red tractor driving around on a farm? It was a Farmall Tractor. This museum has a fully restored model of many Farmall Tractors. They display a miniature Farmall Dealership built as a prototype. I don't know anything about farming but I got a great education about the equipment they used from our guide, Bill. There are three large buildings with International Harvester-built things: refrigerators, combines, tractors, road graders, trucks, and even the "Devil Tractor." The sheer number of tractors is amazing. They have guided tours, and I would suggest you get there early and beat the crowds. You'll get a great tour.
