About American Precision Museum

Housed in the 1846 Robbins & Lawrence Armory, the museum is open daily 10-5 from late May to the end of October. American Society of Mechanical Engineers designated the museum an International Mechanical Engineering Heritage Site and Collection. Explore exhibits to learn how sixty years after the American Revolution transformed government, Americans changed the world again. In great factories and small shops, innovators and entrepreneurs figured out how to make complex objects in quantity by machine, rather than one at a time by hand. The weapons of war and the peaceful products of everyday life became plentiful. Explore our exhibits to meet the people who made it happen, and to experience the machinery they brought to life. Visit our Working Machine Shop where student interns demonstrate on historic machines and make connections with modern manufacturing.
