    Due to the pandemic, I'm sure it has changed, but a few years ago it was a guided museum tour followed by a walk-through on the factory floor, up close and personal.

    Use to be actual factory tours back in the day, now it's pretty much just the museum.
    That's disappointing. We went in 1996 but there was no factory tour that month because they were retooling for the C5. It's been on our list to go back.
    We did get to test ride a couple Buells because Harley was having a big weekend festival on the grounds.

    While a bit confuzzeled on the history track- Tremont Nail.

    I have been to the original site (pre Mansfield) down on the start of Cape Cod in Wareham. Some years ago Tremont Nail moved to Mansfield and joined Acorn Manufacturing. The Delong family has been at the helm of Acorn for quite some time making some of the finest reproduction hardware that can be found.

    Here is a bit of a factory tour recently featured on WBZ TV Boston-



    Watching the the "cut" nails being made is pretty cool

    Acorn is here- http://www.acornmfg.com

    John Deere Tractor Factory, Waterloo, Iowa back in 1969. I could have watched them build engines all day.

    Worked in Production Planning for an automaker. Toured everything from casting plants to door trim suppliers. And they usually treated you well.

    After touring a sausage factory no one wants the free sample at the end.
