Like the idea of living on a farm? Picture yourself there at the Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum where you can watch a room full of volunteer weavers (and buy their labors!), learn to make tools and climb aboard a tractor or two.

Ever feel stuffy in a museum full of static pieces? The exact opposite is true about the Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum! The Museum, located on a 55-acre plot in Vista, focuses on 1849 through early 1960s exhibits demonstrating farm equipment and tools. And usually these exhibits involve working equipment and demonstrations. The Museum’s collections contain over 20,000 items, including old steam engines, rare manuals and photos. Their exhibits include a blacksmith shop, farmhouse and parlor, gas engine row, short track railroad, steam engine row, steam traction engines, gas and diesel tractors and museum weavers.
