  • Really neat with more museums on the riverfront than one can do in a weekend. I tried getting Caterpillar to give us the stock holder admission being the shares are down but that's a negative on discounts. Hopefully with all these visitors the market will start back up on Monday. Well worth the time and beautiful scenery throughout.
  • This place was very AWESOME! My husband worked for a dealership of Caterpillar for 43 years and I've always loved Rocks and Earth! I really extremely loved this place and all that it has to offer! All of the different types of machinery and Caterpillar goes all the way back to 1905! There's loads of history here and the kids can actually climb on a lot of the machines! I had a really good time here! I would give them a 1,000 stars, if I could! 🐾🐾🦕
