  • Super fun and educational! I went with my school on a field trip and it was really fun.
  • Such great history, excellent exhibits, and plenty of information and tours to keep you busy. I recommend the canal tours, which really give you a feel for the history here.
  • 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!
  • Great for learning about the 19th Century Textile Industry in New England. The Park Rangers are very knowledgeable. Good primary sources to explore.
  • 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!
