The American Precision Museum celebrates the history and future of American manufacturing achievements. Set in the historic Robbins & Lawrence Armory, where many mass production tools and methods were pioneered, the museum now holds the nation’s largest collection of historically-significant machine tools. After receiving NEH funding to help assess and preserve its permanent collections, the museum undertook a significant reinterpretation of its primary exhibition with further NEH grant support. With this support, the American Precision Museum created a permanent exhibition, Shaping America, that takes into account the museum’s location in a historic munitions factory.
