“Repeat Visits”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is an excellent, inexpensive way to get lots of insight into the history of the largest clothing mills in North America (at one time), as well as the city of Manchester. It is also a night place to take our guests, as we live in the area and can get passes from the local library.

“Really? A museum?”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Totally misleading. This is not a museum. This is a tax write off. If you want to see a Mill Museum go to Lowell's National Park. But skip this...

“If you can't make it to Lowell Mass, this will do”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

The small exhibit tells the story of mills and the textile industry. It's very slight compared to Lowell's National Park presentation, and could use a little more hands-on stuff.

“Interesting History”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

I lliked the way the displays were arranged. The information was easy to read and there was a lot of it. You could tell that the people who put the museum together were proud of their textile heritage. Many interesting machines and anecdotes about the workers and the times they lived in
