DescriptionOpen from Memorial Day to Labor Day, the Michigan Flywheelers Museum is located on more than 70 acres that are filled with exhibits and displays pertaining to agricultural history. Guided tours will take visitors back into time as they visit exhibits such as the Stephenson Barn that is filled with old tractors and engines, the sawmill where logs are cut into lumber, a shinglemill and Old Towne - a 1920s community filled with places like Over The Hill Forge, Old Tyme Jail, Abbert and Sons Farm Machinery Repair and the Farm History Building.
Several events are held annually at the museum.
First on the schedule is Farm History Day. Open to area schools, students take a self guided tour that involves plenty of hands on activities like dipping candles, making butter and grinding corn.
In June, the Swap Meet & Hammer In is held. One of the largest weekend flea markets in the area, sellers offer everything from antiques to tractor parts.
In conjunction with the Swap Meet is the Hammer In. Blacksmiths from all over southwest Michigan spend the weekend pounding iron into works of art. Classes, demonstrations and artwork for sale are available all weekend.
By far, the largest affair at the museum is its
Antique Engine and Tractor Show in September. One of the largest of its kind in the state, the show draws collectors from all over the United States, Canada and even Europe. The four-day event offers nightly entertainment, parades, flea market, activities for children, tractor pulls, and demonstrations.
