Open daily from Memorial Day weekend through October, (free Sundays), visitors to the American Precision Museum, housed in the 1846 Robbins & Lawrence Armory, a National Historic Landmark, will see collections of not only significant machine tools but also early firearms, measuring devices, sewing machines, typewriters and other unique products of precision manufacturing.
To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the museum opens two new exhibits Saturday, May 26th.
