  • The Industrial Museum captures the mechanical genius of an earlier era. The mill building and contents display the tools and artifacts of local businesses.
  • Very interesting museum about mechanical stuff. I was there for a wedding.
  • Beautiful venue, not that easy to get to if you don't know where you are.
  • Really interested place if you're into mechanical engineering. The staff is also very knowledgeable and friendly.
  • Great look into one history during the industrial age. Walking paths to the museum overlooks the river and provide great scenery especially during the fall months
