Wife and I stopped in during a leaf-peeping visit. This was a wonderful surprise. The number of old machines is amazing, and the information displayed for each one was very helpful and educational. There are no barriers or glass covering these displays, which really allows you a close and detailed look.
There is a center section that contains machines that are operated throughout the day by very knowledgeable machinists. My wife watched as the operator made a small brass goblet and a gear that he gave her. She was full of questions, and he was able to answer all of them.
There is also a nice gun display, with information on how standardization and "precision" helped advance the military's capability. The building itself is an old Armory, right on a small creek. Not to be missed.
