Why You Should Go...

Spend an hour or an afternoon at the Caterpillar Visitors Center, where you can experience Caterpillar on a self-guided journey at your own pace. Along the way you will find interactive displays and exhibits

Your experience begins in the bed of a massive two-and-a-half story Cat(R) 797F Mining Truck as you take a virtual ride into a customer's mine site. Unleash your inner engineer and design your very own Cat machine, then email the design to yourself as a memento of your visit. Hop on a simulator and see first-hand what it's like to operate equipment the way the professionals do. Sit in the seat and pull the levers of actual Cat machinery.

Don't forget to stop by The Cat Merchandise Center - an on-site gift shop offering a wide selection of collector die-cast scale models as well as the latest in Cat and Caterpillar footwear and apparel.
