Virtual Vermonter - American Precision Museum

 

Housed in the original Robbins & Lawrence Armory, the American Precision Museum holds the largest collection of "historically significant" machine tools in the US. According to their Website, 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 Museum features a number of collections, including machine tools, sewing machines, typewriters, firearms, precision hand tools and scale models. It is also home to an extensive collection of published/archival materials related to the history of New England manufacturing (due to space limitations, the library and archives are available only by appointment at present).

The American Precision Museum is open seven days a week, 10-5, Memorial Day through October 31. You can visit them physically at 196 Main Street in Windsor, online at http://www.americanprecision.org/ to see the latest museum news, events and exhibits, or call them at 802-674-5781. The American Precision Museum is recognized as both a National Historic Site and an International Mechanical Engineering Heritage Site.
