We love museums and for a surprise I took my husband here. He lived in Manchester NH his whole life and didn't even know about it. He was thrilled. Seeing the architecture of the mills and how they functioned as well as things from the past. It was a great day. Not just for older folks, if you have a... More

We weren't sure if we would be interested in this museum, but there was so much history about this town and how it thrived when the mill was here, and the troubled times when it went bankrupt. Nice to see the equipment and read about the people who lived and worked here. Since the museum is actually in the old... More

The Millyard Museum is worth a couple of hours, if you want to learn a lot about the history of Manchester and the area. I have lived in Manchester on and off over the past 8 years, and I loved learning about the early settlers, the importance of the mills in the economy of the city's past, and other little... More

I was a little bit disappointed in the Millyard Museum. It had ver nice exhibits on the history of Manchester, but I was hoping for more about the mills. The Museum is located in a an old mill that has been restored, but the exhibits actually hide the old mill so there is almost nothing that you can gather about... More

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 in multiple fields, such as the arts, politics, and sports.

Extremely intersting muaseum focused on mill workers adn the early history of American textile industry. Includes the first steam fire engine which was invented in Manchester. Many examples of early weaving machines. Allow time to read the placards about how the mill workers were housed, indentured, and early strikes.

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.

We only had about an hour to spend in downtown Manchester and had seen information about this museum. We were very pleased with the quality of the exhibits which clearly told the story of the mills in Manchester. We had very little prior knowledge about this history and came away much more informed. Our major disappointment was that there were... More
