Westbury Steam Museum, Westbury, TasmaniaDescribed as a 'Vintage Tractor Shed'. Even at first sight, this appears to be a well stocked collection- then you realise that there is another shed yet... Then another... .
Gunnedah Rural Museum, New South Wales. The most striking thing about this museum was the stock yard at the rear. As I remember, it covered about an acre and was filled with the carcasses of tractors of all makes. As a tractor enthusiast, your reaction to this museum will be akin to that of a child in a sweet factory.

The museum and how it started.
I have always been interested in farming and in tractors in particular. Therefore I built this museum on my native farm: Ankerslund. The museum opened to the public in 2000 and is today the world´s largest collection of Ferguson tractors and implements being open to the public. The museum is 100 % privately owned and receives no state subsidy. In the halls of exhibition we show the collection from about 1919 and up to our time together with other farming machinery, implements and other vehicles. Together with the Thursday club I have restored most of the tractors, and they are presented with data and story. However so far, only in Danish. The little grey Ferguson retired the workhorses and was really a boost in the mechanizing of the agriculture after the second world war. This meant more hands to the industry, and the little grey is therefore a pillar of the wealth we can enjoy today.

Morsø Tractor Museum is Denmark's oldest - the collection was established more than 25 years ago and the museum opened on the 23rd October 1980. The collection today comprises no less than 80 different tractors representing approximately 40 different manufacturers, the oldest being a Case from 1919 and the newest being a Hela from 1960. During the past 15 years the museum has imported veteran tractors from Eastern Germany and Poland, as well as from Holland, Germany, Canada, Norway, Sweden and the Czech republic, resulting in a unique collection. The museum comprises 1200 sq. metres spread over 4 buildings. Many of the tractors are exhibited with original implements.
The Agricultural Museum of Iceland
The museum has an extensive collection of farm artifacts from the first plows and other horse driven equipments in earlier times and the first tractors in Iceland to the more modern farms of today. The museum keeps the Iceland´s largest collection of farm machinery from 1880 and beyond; among them the first tractors in the country AND a small collection of Ferguson-tractors, and among them one of the very first Fergusons which came to Iceland - early in the year 1949.
