Owner description: Museum dedicated to history and influence of the mills in Manchester.

This had all of the elements that made this museum a great experience for my wife and I. She is a sociologist and I am mechanically oriented. This museum did a great job covering how the mill system worked and its impact on the local economy. How it all worked and how the people lived are well documented with great displays and some actual examples of some machines.

Spend an hour or two at this museum which chronicles the milling industry. Along the way were explanatory videos; not too long so your attention doesn't drift. Staff is pleasant and helpful.

Walk through an authentic mill building to experience local history and culture from the original Native Americans to the rise and decline of the mills. See the equipment and pictures of the immigrants who worked them. Great for all ages.

Not only is there a good archive of information about Manchester and the surrounding area, but there is a short tourable display area. The library staff are very helpful and ready to ask questions and help anyone find information. Computers are available for free use to search through photos and archives as well.

Although the museum is fairly limited, we thoroughly enjoyed it for the first time when family visited from Florida. We were concerned that our grandchildren, ages 9 and 12 would be a bit too old to enjoy it, I think we as adults enjoyed it every bit as much as they did and they have been to many places in Boston, Philadelphia, New York and Washington, DC.
