Support Manufacturing with Your End-of-the-Year Contributions
The American Precision Museum is designing new, engaging exhibits available to all ages and accessible in person and on digital platforms. Be part of preserving industrial history.
The American Precision Museum occupies the Robbins and Lawrence Armory building in Windsor, Vermont.
Manufacturing innovation makes modern life possible, but the industry can grow only by preserving the knowledge learned from its past and using historical equipment as the foundation for today’s manufacturing technology. To support this goal, the American Precision Museum is asking for donations for a series of new exhibits and workforce development workshops.
The goal of the American Precision Museum is to celebrate America’s precision manufacturing heritage and to inspire its future. The museum occupies the 1846 Robbins and Lawrence Armory building in Windsor, Vermont, which is said to be the birthplace of modern manufacturing. For the building’s 175th anniversary in 2021, the APM is designing new, engaging exhibits available to all ages and accessible in person and on digital platforms. The story of the inception, evolution, and impact of American manufacturing will come to life in the new exhibit “Looking Back to Face Forward.” In the coming year, this will include a series of interactive displays telling the story of how manufacturing moved from manually creating custom parts to using machine tools to create interchangeable parts. Complementary workshops and camps will offer hands-on activities with traditional and high-tech machines to foster positive impressions of STEM curriculum and careers in advanced manufacturing.
To do this, the APM needs your help. The International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) from AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology is supporting a fundraising campaign for the museum. Please consider making a unique gift to a manufacturer in your life by donating in that person’s name to the APM. Watch the video below to learn what your gift will mean to the museum, visitors and future generations of manufacturers.
