Superb presentation of the history of the Amoskeag mills and the resulting city. Well-designed, informative, this museum led to my learning a lot about my city I did not know. Great fun!

Wether you are visiting or already live in Manchester, this is a great place to learn about the city's beginnings. It is surprising just how many things were made in these mills. Great way to spend a few hours!

This is a wonderful little museum that is dedicated to preserving Manchester's history through the years. From our industrial boom with amusement park to the current cultural city we are, this is a little bit of all the coolest parts of our history!

While the museum placed much emphasis on the history of the Amoskeag mills, where it is located, it went beyond that to explain the history of Manchester, particularly its rich ethnic heritage. There is also an area that honors Manchester residents that have achieved success...More

Takes about an hour, self guided tour. Many photos, some artifacts, tons of history. Knew all about the textile production in the area, never knew about the locomotives. Definitely worth visiting this museum.
