Bolt Museum tractorBolt’s Antique Tool Museum is hosting a special event on Saturday, August 23, 2014, starting at 10:30 A.M.

He also will be lining up the area outside of the museum with many, one-of-a-kind vintage tractors, and small engines. Pricing for the event is kids under twelve free, over twelve and adults are only $3.00 which also gets you inside this unique museum to see the many displays which included some interactive activities for children.

Bolt’s Antique Tool Museum, opened in 2006, has tools not only that have been used in the United States, but also tools, including some thought to be made by Egyptians and Romans in 400 B.C. Man’s first tool was the “stone” which was attached to a stick creating leverage. A barbed-wire collection, old gas pumps, blacksmith tools and 125 tools representing 51 different railroads provide insight into earlier days in the United States. At last count the museum had over 12,000 tools and continues to grow each day.

Located at 1650 Broderick Street, near the Historic Oroville District, the museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 A.M. to 3:45 P.M. and Sundays from 11:45 A.M. to 3:45 P.M. It also has a creative and interesting gift shop for tool enthusiasts.
