Slater Mill Museum is a gem: it does history in the most interesting ways. The tour is tremendously informative without being boring or stuffy. Most important, you will learn more than you could imagine about the central role Southern slavery and cotton played in the...More

Cool place to go to see how old Pawtucket used to operate. Interesting place to take the family, especially some younger/preteen kids, to show them how things used to get done.

Pawtucket is loaded with old mills. It's nice to see this one restored and keeping the history of the area. You can see how the water was used in the mills for power. Interesting and quaint place by the river.

Our guide was very informative. I didn't realize there were 3 buildings on the site. Lots of history in such a compact place. The setting is quaint and actually peaceful, in the garden and alongside the river waterfall.
