A group of about a dozen Australian men visited the Galva area on Tuesday, getting a closer look at local agriculture and history.

Jerry Kuster of Galva hosted the group at his farm Tuesday morning before taking them into Galva, where they visited Kuster's "Old Red Farm Shed" museum.

The museum features International Harvester, Farmall and other agricultural equipment, as well as antique cars and items manufactured by former Galva businesses many years ago.

The museum is currently open on Saturdays, from 1 to 4 p.m. It will also be open on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 10 and 11 (Galva Day weekend), from 1 to 4 p.m. both days. Admission is free.

The shed is located one block south of Route 34 East and two blocks west of the River Valley Co-op offices.
