There’s A Vermeer Museum In Iowa And It’s Full Of Fascinating Oddities, Artifacts, And More
Vermeer is a nationally recognized farm machinery company that got its start right here in Iowa. You might have already known that. But what you perhaps didn’t know is that a portion of the Vermeer complex (that’s still located right here in-state) is actually open to the public! It’s the Vermeer Museum and Global Pavilion on the outskirts of Pella, Iowa, and it’s filled to the brim with the history of the Vermeer Corporation and the Vermeer family. Inside, you’ll find a wide variety of artifacts, from actual farm equipment to photographs to marriage licenses to gifts from foreign dignitaries to so much more.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
To learn more about Vermeer, visit the company’s website. Did you know the story of the Vermeer family and the international farming business they’ve built? And if you’re in the area checking out the Vermeer Museum, do what we did and pair your visit with a trip to Cranberry Stone in downtown Pella for a great-tasting cupcake from another successful Iowa start-up.
Address: Vermeer Museum & Global Pavilion, 2110 Vermeer Rd, Pella, IA 50219, USA
