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. Bring the entire family to experience live historical equipment demonstrations at our annual Wheels & Tracks in Motion event running June 9 and 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Simcoe County Museum has joined together with the Historical Construction Equipment Association of Canada (H.C.E.A.) to put on this exciting and interactive show for the whole family. Observe working demonstrations of historical construction equipment spread throughout the Museum’s grounds. These iron giants include a steam shovel, steam roller, cable shovels, road graders, rock crushers, bulldozers, earth-movers, stationary power equipment, and vendors of model trucks, tractors and more.
Ride on one of our people-movers to take in all the action or walk in the tracks of these mighty machines. Stay for the day and purchase a BBQ lunch at one of our concession stands, or pack your own lunch to enjoy at our covered picnic areas.
Enjoy the Museum galleries and indoor event-related displays, including a hands-on area for building a Meccano masterpiece, and viewing completed Meccano models that will inspire and amaze. This is an experience for all ages that you won’t want to miss it.
