Friday, September 06, 2019, 12:15 PM until 4:30 PM
Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation
In what was once a textile mill’s massive boiler and engine room in Waltham is a treasure trove of cranks, gears, and over-sized wires known collectively as the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation. Established to preserve America’s rich history of mechanical progress and focusing on the industrial revolution in the country, the Museum offers visitors a chance to see how the world worked before computers and wireless ubiquity. The collection features exhibits on such topics as steam power, clockworks, and pre-combustion transportation, and a gallery devoted to the Waltham Watch Company. Meet at North Station at 12:15 p.m. for the 12:45 p.m. train. Upon arrival at the Waltham Station just after 1:00 p.m., it is a short walk (or taxi ride) to the museum. Return on the 3:59 p.m. train. BHV members & guests: $5 includes museum admission & docent-led tour. Please pay individually for $10.00 R/T senior commuter rail tickets.
