  • Great place to get your inner geek going. I spent an enjoyable 2+ hours admiring power transfer pulleys, multi-jig lathes, and end mills galore. Plus, a gift shop!
  • A great little slice of history! This is an amazing museum of the once bustling precision valley. So many great exhibits of both old guns and the machines that made them. There are interactive exhibits and even some machining demonstrations. Would recommend for all ages. The staff her is extremely knowledgeable and freindly. A great way to spend a day.
  • It was my first time going, but the people I went with both were there multiple times over the years. If you have any interest in machinery if any kind, you will love this place. It was really fun and awesome learning about the various machines and how they were used. Every so often they have interns from VT Tech come in and provide some demonstrations of how some of the machines work. You may even get a souvenir or two from their demos!
  • I love this place. They are very liberal about letting you photograph the machines. Pat, at the front desk, is very smart and friendly.
  • Great place. Nice displays. Spent a good amount of time with Clay super nice guy and very smart
