Boott Cotton Mills Museum: Fee Free for August 14 & 15, 2010
Contact: Phil Lupsieiwcz, 978-275-1705
Lowell, MA — Lowell National Historical Park is waiving museum fees at the Boott Cotton Mills Museum August 14 & 15, 2010. "National Parks offer visitors great places to exercise their bodies and their minds - or just relax with family or friends," said National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis. And to make the fun even more affordable, many national park concessioners are joining the National Park Service in welcoming visitors on this summer's fee free weekends with their own special offering.
The Boott Cotton Mills Museum is open daily from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm at 115 John Street. Visitors are encouraged to begin their visit to the Park at the Visitor Center, 246 Market Street. While there, information is also available about many other park offerings and cultural attractions in the City.
