“Excellent history, well presented”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

This is a gem of a place set in the middle of a multi-cultural vibrant small city. The industrial revolution began here and it centered around water power and people of all genders and types. A great place to walk as there are several areas to tour--but if you don't like the walk, take the trolley. And don't forget the canal tours.

“A great treasure”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

Many people don't think of going to Lowell, but the National Park is wonderful. There is a boat ride through the canals, A trolley ride and the Boot Cotton Mill Museum. Very interesting.
