Due to the COVID-19 Outbreak, the National Construction Equipment Museum is closed to the public until further notice. The office is open from 9:00 to 5:30 Eastern on weekdays.  

Also due to the outbreak, our 2020 International Convention & Old Equipment Exposition has been POSTPONED. Instead of this August, it will be held August 27-29, 2021, at the same location near Concordia, Kansas.  

Updates will be posted here and to our social media pages. Thank you for your understanding, and be well.
