    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!
