  • It's a fantastic collection. We enjoyed looking around. There was no employees there. Very loud rap music, not really appropriate for a museum.
  • Fascinating history of the innovations with laser, radar, and fiber optics all in Southbridge. Would highly recommend this museum to anyone with an interest in science, manufacturing, and history. Truly a hidden gem.
