In addition to these special events and free programs, ATHM often presents free lectures and talks in conjunction with special exhibitions.
The American Textile History Museum welcomes hundreds of new faces to the Museum each year through our Free “Super Saturday” events. These themed events feature fun and educational hands-on activities and demonstrations as well as free admission for the general public.
At our last Super Saturday on October 12, 2013, kids of all ages enjoyed free tours of the exhibit, fun with color-themed crafts and 1960s games, celebrating our special exhibition Color Revolution: Style Meets Science in the 1960s.

Part of Lowell Women's Week
Wednesday, March 5, 2-5pm
This year, Lowell Women’s Week explores not only on the accomplishments women have made individually, but also the contributions they have made in our communities and world. ATHM celebrates the important role of women as “makers” and the keepers of traditions by offering a special program, “Made with Love,” in conjunction with Lowell Women’s Week. This show-and-tell program offers an opportunity to share works created by the special women in your lives. Over the history of time, women have embraced traditions, using their skills, knowledge, and refined techniques to create works such as embroideries, clothing, and lace. These works, passed down from generation to generation, tell their stories and offer a unique glimpse into the lives of the women who made them. Please join us, and share your works and their stories. This event is free and open to the public.
ATHM is now a proud 2014 participant in Bank of America's "Museums On Us" program, which gives cardholders FREE admission to the Museum during the first full weekend of each month.
