A very educational day about the long history of this huge factory town. Really the whole town is a museum. I recommend you sign up for the canal tour as soon as you arrive at the visitor center. A very fun way to learn about...More

Lots to see and do at the park. Start with the visitor center movie and displays. Buy tickets for the 1:45 hr canal and trolley tour. Visit the mills and take in a ranger talk. Great history of our industrial revolution here in North America.

This Visitor Center is excellent. Go before 4:30 pm to hear and see the mill working. Be certain to see the second floor displays; really good. Jr. Ranger is very good and a beautiful patch can be earned.

You have to experience it to realize how little you know about the world of textile. A must visit. Lowell is just an incredible city. The high school 's history alone will be quite an eye opener.

Parking is on 246 Market St, go through the gate & a ticket. You don't pay for parking because at the visitor center they validate your ticket. We got there about 2pm and had no idea what to see around the city that was related...More
