The Museum preserves the heritage of the mechanical arts, celebrates the ingenuity of our mechanical forebears, and explores the effects of their work on our everyday lives. The American Precision Museum, housed in the original Robbins & Lawrence Armory, now holds the largest collection of historically significant machine tools in the nation. 

Precision manufacturing touches us all. Without it, we would not have the mass communication, rapid transportation, modern standards of sanitation and medical care, abundant food and clothing, or the leisure for universal education.

Maker Mondays -- makerspace fun!Inquisitive families can design objects using recycled materials, make mazes for robots, construct with K*nex, or build your own simple machine in our Learning Lab. Basic tools & instructions available. Makers of all ages welcome!

Tinker Tuesdays  -- bring a small item from home to take apart to discover how it works or tinker with an object already available. Children ages 8 -12 who complete a Junior Apprentice Program activity booklet receive a badge that serves as a free Saturday admission pass for the rest of the season.

Junior Apprentices are invited to join in guided hands-on activities in the Museum’s Learning Lab each Saturday.

Open daily, Memorial Day Weekend through October 31, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The American Precision Museum is proud to be a Blue Star Museum, offering free admission to active duty military & their families. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
