We tell the story of America's industrial revolution as it unfolded in Manchester, New Hampshire, which was once home to the largest textile manufacturer in the world. The museum's exhibits and displays are professionally designed and presented. We get positive comments and reviews from our visitors who come from around the United States and the world. What’s your favorite part of your job? Being able to share with others American history through the history of Manchester and its wonderful mill buildings, which are truly exceptional. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? The mill buildings in Manchester's Millyard District were all built by the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company over a period of 75 years. The company ensured that all the bricks be a uniform color to give a sense of unity and harmony. The Millyard is on the National Register of Historic Places, as are the nearby still-intact corporate housing clusters built by the company for its workers.

  • Charmingfare Farm
    Baby goats and calves lounge on straw in a petting zoo while wolves and black bears frolic just yards away. It's not a radical experiment in natural selection, though; it's just part of the varied attractions at Charmingfare Farm. After taking in the entire zoo—from pigs to camels—guests can avail themselves of such diversions as trail rides atop one of the farm's friendly horses. Horse-drawn hayrides and sleigh ride socials culminate in a stop at a roaring bonfire where guests can cook all the hotdogs and 'smores they've captured in the wild.
