  • It baffling to see what it took to make cloth a century ago. They have a well thought out education program that explores the different aspects of a cotton mill: the workers, their treatment, the engineering mastery, and many other things! This is a must see if you're in the area!
  • Absolutely amazing museum covering the Industrial Revolution in Lowell. Admission prices were more than reasonable, and our family spent a wonderful day here, and at the other parts of the National Park. Couldn't recommend it any more highly!
  • Great for learning about the 19th Century Textile Industry in New England. The Park Rangers are very knowledgeable. Good primary sources to explore.
  • Great historically significant park and presentations. I have brought students to the museum over several years. The boarding house and factory floors are great experiences to reinforce and enliven understandings about the industrializing North and connection to the Southern cotton plantations and slavery.
