The Lester F. Larsen Tractor Test and Power Museum is showcasing two new exhibits—The Land of Opportunity Perspective and NU Energy for Agricultural Technology Education and Research.
The Land of Opportunity features historic haying tools, plows, yokes and planters along with past and potential future agriculture-related energy sources. Designed in the shape of a loop, the exhibit shows that the plains were once viewed as a land of opportunity and that, with continuous research, education and a new perspective, this same land remains full of opportunity.
The NU Energy exhibit features plans and models by UNL students who were enrolled in the Museum of Agricultural Technology architecture design studio in Fall 2005. A UNL advertising class also worked in the spring semester on marketing and public relations for the museum, studying the museum's strategic plan, focusing on university needs such as bioenergy research and education, student recruitment, retention and even recreation.
Museum hours are Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. The museum is located on East Campus, north of L.W. Chase Hall.
