  • This museum was a really cool experience. I had no idea that the mills that formerly existed in this area had such a strong connection to both the former French-Canadian culture of the area (which I also knew very little of) and changing labor rights movements. Very worth a visit
  • Important history to be learned of Blackstone Valley's role in Industrial Revolution, Immigration, life in a mill village, role of religion in the community as well as the company store. Excellent exhibits and outstanding special events: e.g., French-American celebrations! Parking lot across street and handicapped spaces near door.
  • Fantastic view into what it was like to work in textile Mills in the 19th century and beyond. A must see for history buffs, unique!
  • Pretty cool. Very interesting! My grandkids learned alot n really enjoyed it
  • A necessary history and tribute to Woonsocket's, and many surrounding town's, heritages and culture.
