          MORE INFORMATION

          Visit Caterpillar in Peoria, Illinois!

          This isn't your average museum! Your visit begins with a virtual ride in the bed of a massive two-and-a-half story Cat 797F Mining Truck. Learn how Caterpillar's story began as two companies came together to build Caterpillar on the foundation of innovation and customer focus. Unleash your inner engineer as you design your very own Cat machine. Test your skills on a simulator to see first-hand what it's like to operate equipment the way our operators do, and no visit is complete without climbing in a track-type tractor.

          Annual Passes

          Do you visit us more than a couple times per year? If so, you may want to consider an Annual Pass to the Caterpillar Visitors Center! Annual Pass holders receive unlimited visits for one year from the date of purchase, $1 off admission tickets for family and friends and a 15% discount at the Cat Merchandise Center.
