In conjunction with CASNR Week, the Larsen Tractor Test and Power Museum will host an open house and an inaugural tractor show on April 13.
The open house will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and the tractor show will take place on the mall south of Chase Hall on UNL's East Campus. Participants are welcome to this free event.
All tractors must have working brakes, all drivers must have a valid driver’s license and no riders will be permitted. All types of tractors will be displayed --including pulling, antique, restored and unrestored machines.
This event will be held in conjunction with the weeklong festivities celebrating the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
The day’s events will conclude with the annual Burr-Fedde-Love Bull Fry from 4 to 8 p.m. in front of Burr Hall.
The family-friendly event will provide an opportunity to see what is new at the museum, including the first tractor model ever tested, the Waterloo Boy Model N.
Also on display is a model farm created by UNL student Adam Frerichs, who works at the Nebraska Tractor Test Lab. His model has won several awards and will be in the Museum through June 1.
The museum will be taking free will donations for building renovations, which will include a new museum store, the Bill Splinter Memorial Art Gallery, engine displays, and exhibit restorations.
