The American Labor Museum is headquartered in the Botto House National Landmark, former home of immigrant mill workers and site of strikers' meetings during the 1913 Paterson Silk Strike. The Museum's mission is to educate the public about the history and contemporary issues of work, workers, and the labor movement with special attention to immigrants.
The Museum offers visitors restored period rooms and Old World Gardens (including a grape arbor and bocce court) that illustrate the domestic lifestyle of immigrant workers of the early twentieth century, an exhibit commemorating the Centennial of the 1913 Paterson Silk Strike,and Museum Store.
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
