Great hour-long tour by a very knowledgeable guide through the birth of Americas industrial revolution in Pawtucket! Saw three buildings next to the Blackstone river- 18th century Brown home, water powered tools and textile mill factories. Definitely recommend well worth the drive from Boston! Wish there was a bit more about the Native American history in the area pre-dating the industrial period.
We went on a field trip today, and with the exception of Mr. Jay and Ms. Amanda, the other presenters were fairly rude and obviously dont know how to properly engage grade school children to keep them interested and content. Its a shame that a place with such a wealth of knowledge can really turn off a childs interest so easily due to poor presentation.
The staff at Slater Mill Museum is always making sure that the displays and tours are always adapting to tell so many of the interesting stories revolving around Slater Mill and the industrial revolution that started there. They also have impressive seasonal ghost tours and tours about the pre-industrialization Era of the surrounding area.
Slater mill is historic. But not something to do everyday. They do tours on a limited basis. To see how the water was use to advance the American way is amazing. I would recommend making time to see this relic. Soon all of the 17th century building will be gone.
Beautiful site, lazy river, pristine grounds. I could have stayed outside. I am very happy I did not. The interior building was nicely lit with little lights and the staff clearly enjoyed what they were doing. Thank you to all staff and a nod of gratitude to Lori
I came today as a chaparogne with my sons school. The tour guides were absoutuyly terrible. Rude to all the children! The only one we enjoyed was the male guide. I will probably never recommended coming her to anyone.

Tour was interesting and included real working machines from the 1700s. Saw a replica of the waterwheel. Guide was knowledgeable and clearly interested in the topic. He was open to questions as well.
A beautiful historic place to visit. They have cotton gins and other artifacts from the mill era here. Wonderful view out the original windows to see the river, and how it would power the mill.
Its small and quick however the city has another venue across street where you can Learn and read about the birth place of the American industrial revolution. Nice free 60 minute excursion.
Provides a good historical background for the early textile industry in New England. Our tour guide was well informed and it was cool to see some of the machines operate.

Personal tour was amazing. .. Carl was so patient with our children and very knowledgeable about everything. Love going there! I go every time we come to RI : )
Excellent restored mill and building clearly depicting the history of weaving in RI - looks very familiar coming from the UK where it all started.
Far more detailed and interactive than you might think. The machine demonstrations were very educational and the guides are very friendly.
Best in Rhode Island for history on the era of industrialization . The cotton mills are worth a field trip
Great place to get some history & enjoy the water views. Back to nature. WARM & I just love this place...
Very interested place to know more about our past. Go to this beautiful place is always enjoyable.
I really enjoyed the old belt driven machinery, and the water wheel is most impressive.
Beautiful story of the industrial period in Pawtucket and the rest of America.
Visit instructive. A must see for lovers of history and industrial mechanics.
Awesome! Tour guides extremely knowledgeable!! I totally recommend to visit!
Really nice grounds to walk around. I have not taken one of the tours yet.
Cool history here. Its worth checking out but its pretty quick and small.
The buildings are interesting. But the tour is too much $$
amazing historic place!! beautiful setting.
Best museum in the state, in my opinion.
Beautiful and the history
