Caterpillar Visitors Center

Looking for that next vaction hot spot?  Take out your maps and circle Peoria, Illinois, more specifically, the brand new Caterpillar Visitors Center. Scheduled to open October 20, the 50,000 square-foot center will house various Cat equipment through the ages to help tell the story of the company from it’s humble begingins to the global equipment powerhouse it is today.  The vistor center will house a giant replica CAT 797 mining truck that not only serves as an interactive display but a 70 person movie theater.  LOL Wut?!

Here is quick video tour of the unfished building and exhibts that will included a D8 simulator and classic restored equipment. Sounds like a blast to me.
