The Millyard Museum –at 200 Bedford Street in downtown Manchester –is rich in history. The Museum features the permanent exhibit, Woven in Time: 11,000 years at Amoskeag Falls, that tells the story of Manchester and the people who have lived and worked here.

All exhibits are included in the price of admission, as well as a special lecture at 11:00 by author and historian Carol Lee Anderson.
