Machines from Our Industrial Past

Hidden in the heart of Waltham's old factory buildings, this small, specialty museum houses early machinery from the textile, watch, auto, and printing industry. Adults will appreciate the rich historical details. Kids will love working the foot powered piano, but might have a hard time believing that 12 year olds once worked in the mills six days a week for three cents an hour. You'll understand how the city got its name after viewing the interesting and extensive watch collection.
