A Historic American Industrial Revolution Museum Featuring State-of-the-Art Technology Set to Open in Webster, MA
Open Friday, March 4 for private and group museum self-guided tours
The Samuel Slater Experience, a historic museum featuring state-of-the-art 4-D digital technology to tell the story of Samuel Slater, the beginnings of the American Industrial Revolution, and the founding of Webster, Massachusetts in the early 19th century, announced today it will be opening its doors to the public on Friday, March 4, 2022 for its first self-guided tours. A team of specialists have been busy working on the former National
Guard Armory building in Webster since 2018 and are thrilled to reveal the new experience to the community and museum-goers from around the world.
The Samuel Slater Experience comprises more than twenty unique, immersive exhibits that transport the audience back to the early 1800s as
the seeds of the American Industrial Revolution were sown. The museum starts with a young and conflicted Samuel Slater and his immigration to
America, his success during the era and his impact on the geographic area. Guests will explore Slater’s unique factory model that would transform manufacturing in America. The museum then takes you forward a century, recreating downtown Webster in the early 1900s, which has become a hub of commerce and industry.
