Welcome to the Mill Museum!

Bienvenidos al Museo Molino!

(Pick here for Welcome Video)

Because of the current coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, the Mill Museum (Windham Textile and History Museum) is now CLOSED to the public. All group tours and programs for March and April are either cancelled or postponed. We will reevaluate the situation in April and decide what to do for May and June. As soon as we are able to reschedule programs and events, we will do so. But in the meantime, “social distancing” does not have to mean complete isolation. Even now, our staff and volunteers are working from home to create virtual exhibits, which will be posted on this website under the menu tab exhibits at the top of this page. The first installment — the first part of our new exhibit, “Unlacing the Corset, Unleashing the Vote” — is already there, under current exhibits. Our Spring newsletter will be emailed sometime in early-to-mid April, and also be available on this website. Folks on our email list will continue to receive emails from us. Our Facebook page, (@WindhamTextileandHistoryMuseum for those of you on FB) will continue to be updated with all kinds of information about industrial history in Connecticut — and beyond. (Note, you do NOT have to be on FB to access our FB page — just enter in your web browser.) WE will continue to update our Executive Director’s blog. Our emaill address,, is still live, and emails will be answered. Our history belongs to us, not to a virus, and the Mill Museum will do its best to bring it to you. We look forward to seeing all of you when we come out of this.
