20th Anniversary of Tsongas Industrial History Center


The Tsongas Industrial History Center, located in the Boott Cotton Mills Museum in downtown Lowell, celebrated its 20th Anniversary this past Friday with a cake, tours, an exhibit of the Center through the years and a speaking program that featured UMass Lowell chancellor Marty Meehan and Thaleia Tsongas Schlesinger, the sister of Paul Tsongas (both shown in above video) and Lowell Mayor Jim Milinazzo and Lowell National Historical Park Superintendent Michael Creasey (both shown in video below). The Tsongas Industrial History Center is a joint venture of UMass Lowell and the Lowell National Historical Park. During its twenty years, it has hosted more than one million students from around the Commonwealth who learn about history, science, technology and engineering at the Center’s hands-on “experiential learning” programs. The anniversary celebration will stretch from this month until May of 2012 with a variety of interesting programs available to school groups and the public.
