Wheels & Tracks in Motion
What do rock-crushers, earth-movers, steam shovels, and road graders all have in common? These machines are just some of the incredible pieces of equipment that you will see up close and in action at the Simcoe County Museum during our annual Wheels & Tracks in Motion event running June 10 and 11 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The Historical Construction Equipment Association has once again partnered with the Simcoe County Museum to put on this exciting and interactive show. Families and guests of all ages will enjoy live demonstrations by knowledgeable operators on the Museum’s extensive grounds. Ride on one of our people-movers to take in the action or walk in the tracks of these mighty machines. You can stay for the day and purchase lunch, or bring a packed meal and relax in our shaded picnic area.
Guests can also enjoy the Museum galleries and indoor event-related displays, including a hands-on area for building Meccano and viewing completed Meccano models that will inspire and amaze.
Regular Museum rates apply: Museum Members and Preschoolers are free; Adults $6.00; Student/Seniors $5:00; and Children $4.00.
The Simcoe County Museum is located at 1151 Highway 26, just minutes north of Barrie.
