In honor of Veterans Day, Lowell National Historical Park will be waiving museum fees for all visitors at the Boott Cotton Mills Museum on Saturday, November 10, through Monday, November 12, 2012.
Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar stated "Visitors to public recreation lands managed by the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management and Bureau of Reclamation are invited to take a day to honor and reflect on what our service men and women have done to maintain our freedom and keep peace around the world." Lowell National Historical Park would like to invite public to visit this weekend to learn more about the history, heritage and people of Lowell.
The Boott Cotton Mills Museum tells the story of America's Industrial Revolution, labor, and the rise, fall, and rebirth of Lowell. The museum, which includes an operating 1920's weaveroom, is open daily from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm. Visitors are encouraged to begin their visit to the Park at the Visitor Center, 246 Market Street.
