The Most Complete Operating Steam and Gas Engine Show in the East



Rough and Tumble is a one-of-a-kind museum, a unique collection of antique and obsolete industrial and agricultural gas- and steam-powered machinery dating back to the early 1900’s.

On 33 acres in Lancaster County, Rough & Tumble helps preserve America’s Agricultural and Industrial history by holding events throughout the year. Ride two special Steam Trains that loop around our grounds, visit a large building of running Stationary Steam Engines, see some of the best restored John Deere, IH, and Rumely tractors around, view Blacksmiths forging items, and enjoy the running displays in the model shops.
