Opening Date Update

We thank you all for your patience as we continue to construct the Samuel Slater Experience. We hope to open to the public in early December. In the meantime, please check out some pictures of our progress!

Work continues on Main Street as trees and the seats of the Liberty Theatre are secured to the floor.

The exterior of the building has been painted and banners are now hanging.
Electronic rats now reside in the wharf.

Sneak Preview Visits

We have begun to hold some sneak preview visits. We hosted the Bartlett Class of 1961 for their 60th Reunion, the Webster-Dudley Business Alliance for their annual meeting, and the Webster Public Schools for an Educators’ Open House.

As we prepare to open, we are slowly booking events. If you are interested in holding an event or group tour, please contact Reanna Kuzdzal at

Become an Experience Guide Today!

On October 7th, we were delighted to welcome members of the community interested in joining our Experience Guide program. We discussed our plans for opening, some expectations of them as guides, and gave them walkthroughs of the space.

Experience Guides will serve as the main point of connection for visitors, assisting them throughout the museum, answering any questions they may have, and sharing personal stories. If you are interested in learning more about becoming an Experience Guide, please contact Reanna Kuzdzal at
