About American Precision Museum

We are a history museum that celebrates the past, present, and future of manufacturing. At our site in the 1840s, a new system of manufacturing crystalized. It would be called “The American System.” Here a group of ingenious mechanics created one of the best gunmaking operations in the world. They had won a contract to make 10,000 rifles for the U.S. Army—all with interchangeable parts. While fulfilling that contract, they created a center for innovation, doing some of the best, high-tech work of the day. The museum tells that story and offers education programs and workforce initiatives to encourage today's youth to pursue manufacturing and innovation.
