Lowell, MA — Lowell National Historical Park is waiving museum fees at the Boott Cotton Mills Museum January 15 -17, 2011. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar yesterday announced that the NPS will waive admission fees on 17 selected dates throughout 2011 and encouraged all Americans to make a New Year's resolution to visit a national park this year. "In these tough economic times, our fee-free days will give families many opportunities to enjoy our nation's heritage and natural beauty in meaningful and affordable ways," he said.
The 2011 fee-free dates will be the weekend of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (January 15-17), National Park Week (April 16-24), the first day of summer (June 21), National Public Lands Day (September 24), and the weekend of Veterans Day (November 11-13).
The Boott Cotton Mills Museum is open daily from 9:30 am to 4:30 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.
