What Our Visitors Said

The American Textile History Museum has closed its doors. But what did our visitors say about their experience at ATHM when we were open? Here are just a few of the dozens of comments from TripAdvisor®, where ATHM earned a “Certificate of Excellence,” given only to destinations that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews.

“Absolutely stunning museum.” – Susan J., Cleveland, OH

“Extraordinary displays!” – Sonia, Woodbridge, VA

 “Unexpectedly great. We traveled to Lowell with two small boys who thought they wouldn’t like this Museum, but ended up really enjoying it. The exhibits are excellent and the Museum is engaging enough for a few hours, but small enough to see everything in an afternoon. Kids especially loved the recreated rooms, car and airplane, and dressing up as firefighters.” – Stephanie W., New York, NY

“I’ve been to a lot of museums, but this is one of the very best!” – S.D., Lowell, MA

“What a surprisingly fascinating museum!” – Deb M., Boston, MA

“Fascinating museum … an intriguing slice of history.”  – Elise S., Israel

“Amazing resource – fun, too!” – Meg W., Austin, TX

“The museum displays were exciting and informative.” – Maria H., Letchworth, United Kingdom

“Great museum – so informative and eye opening! We’d go back again.” – Nancy N., Hudson, NH

“Adults and kids can enjoy the hands on and interactive multi-media exhibits. This is a museum that encourages thinking and doing along with looking at exhibits that range from colonial clothing making to the testing of major baseballs. A high quality museum located in what was once a historic mill town, with a national historic site nearby to complete the experience.” – P.B., Boston, MA
