Samuel Slater Experience

31 Ray Street, Webster, MA 01570 - United States




Samuel Slater Experience tells the story of the early American Industrial Revolution, the lives of textile mill workers, and the transition of New England agricultural communities to bustling centers of commerce. The museum uses state-of-the-art, 4-D digital technology to create immersive experiences and interactive exhibits to explore a century of economic progress and the topics of the times, including international trade, immigration, wartime economics, and child labor. Samuel Slater Experience opened in March of this year.


The museum will open at 10 a.m. and close at 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 17. Visitors should plan to spend one-to-two hours.
