Closed Jan. 2 – Feb. 9, 2023

The Mill Museum closes every January for deep cleaning, routine maintenance, and mounting new exhibits. As native New Englanders, we know that January is the traditional month for Yankees to hunker down, clean the barn, fix the wagons, mend the harnesses, fire up the wood stove, and make sure the cheeses and canned goods in the pantry are in good shape. We will close at end of the day on Sunday, Jan. 1, 2023, and reopen on Friday, February 10, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. We’ll still be checking our voice mail and email, though, so keep in touch. And we’ll continue to post on social media, update the content on our website, accept donations of historical artifacts, check in on our volunteers, plan events and programs, and add artifacts to our online collections catalog. 

Located in the historic former headquarters of the American Thread Company, the Mill Museum houses a museum, historical society, library, and archive. Through its exhibits, programs, activities, and collections, the Museum preserves and interprets the history of textiles, the textile industry, and textile communities in Connecticut.
