See historic machinery and tools made during the American Industrial Revolution.

American Precision Museum is an awesome place to visit, especially if you have a love for history. The museum's building is also a national historic landmark, an armory built in 1846, located on the border of Vermont and New Hampshire. Windsor, Vermont, was an important manufacturing hub in America during the 19th century. You will learn about the "American System" and how it impacted the factory and manufacturing process overseas. Over the years, hard labor workers didn't have to do such repetitive work with the help of specialized machines and tools in factories. 

Explore the 4,000 square foot museum and discover Vermont's industrial history. The central exhibit is called "Shaping America" and tells about the advancements of machining and how it led to bigger and better improvements during the industrial era. Another neat exhibit is called "The Science and Technology of Measurement," which features various instruments and old tools that can measure speed, distance, hardness, weight, power, and time. Bring your friends and family to this unique, historical museum the next time you're in Vermont.
