American Precision Museum

196 Main Street, Windsor, VT 05089 - United States




The American Precision Museum celebrates the mechanical ingenuity that shaped our country. Through more than 150 years of US history, Precision Manufacturing has driven rapid industrialization, stimulated technical innovation, and grown our consumer culture. The museum, housed in the historic Robbins and Lawrence Armory, uses displays, videos, and demonstrations to tell this remarkable American story.

Besides holding some remarkable machinery, the lobby holds the Learning Lab for both young and old helping to bridge the gap between yesterday, today and tomorrow. There is also the Working Machine Shop where interns use some of the machines and explain their process.


Smithsonian Museum Day we have our Innovation Station, our new exhibit "Made by Hand to Made by Machine" as well as many additional exhibits may include miniature models.

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.
