A great place to learn about the history of Manchester and its mills

A small museum, but there's something for everybody - the technology of the mills and canals, life and commerce in the 19th century...

We stopped here to get a lesson on Manchester while we were in town for a family gathering. Terrific exhibits, very well organized, loved the exhibits that focused on the actual town. Very informative and impressive; well done.

Visited the museum with two friends who like history. This museum is so well done, so professional and so interesting. Everything was well maintained and well written. The photographs are extremely well done. If you are interested in local history (and all history is local) this is the place to go.

Like stepping back in time... Great displays, well laid out, charming, whimsical, interesting. I dare you to leave without learning something new. It's like a history museum set up in an historic surrounding. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, we will be back. Price is right!

Not all that big and took about 1.5 hours to do reading pretty much everything. Interesting if you find history of mill towns interesting in general. Maybe a little expensive at $8/each for for what it is. Overall a good stop as part of an afternoon out to sightsee and good out to eat.

We truly enjoyed our visit to this little museum. It gave us a feel for what life was like in Manchester during the rise (and fall) of the mills. They had lots of artifacts and some interesting videos. We stumbled upon it after seeing the Lego exhibit at the SEE museum upstairs. This was a far quieter and more interesting... More

The Millyard Museum does a great job of pulling together the history of the area from the early Paleo-Indians to the reason why raw cotton was actually important to the people of New England. I loved seeing the photos of the millyard and its workers and reading about the different ethnic groups that made up the people of the Amoskeag... More

The museum was well laid out, very organized with some unique displays and pieces. It even covered the the Indian tribes that originated in the area. The only complaint I have is, there are guided tours available of the cellar, but we were never told about it by the young man who took our admission money. We found out later... More

my expectations were low for this museum and I was pleasantly surprised by what I found. It is a small museum outlining the history of the mill yards and it is placement along the Merrimack River. I learned lots of interesting facts. No, it is not as comprehensive as Lowell, Massachsetts but then you do not need all day to... More
