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

We enjoy visiting this museum every few years. It is a quaint and we find the history of the millyard and Manchester interesting. Can get free tickets from the Manchester City Library if you live or work in the city.

This customized museum relates the history of the mill industry that used to provide employment for most of Manchester. Information is readily displayed and easy to read. The museum is spacious. The displays entice the visitor to seek more information, perhaps do pertinent research, on the mills that once provided employment for much of the city and surrounding towns.

This had all of the elements that made this museum a great experience for my wife and I. She is a sociologist and I am mechanically oriented. This museum did a great job covering how the mill system worked and its impact on the local economy. How it all worked and how the people lived are well documented with great... More

Spend an hour or two at this museum which chronicles the milling industry. Along the way were explanatory videos; not too long so your attention doesn't drift. Staff is pleasant and helpful.

Walk through an authentic mill building to experience local history and culture from the original Native Americans to the rise and decline of the mills. See the equipment and pictures of the immigrants who worked them. Great for all ages.
