Welcome to the Website of the
Middlesex Canal Museum--Visitors Center

For the past nine years a group of dedicated volunteers has operated the Middlesex Canal Museum and Visitor Center at the Faulkner Mill in North Billerica. At first the generosity of the owner allowed us to stay there. He now feels it necessary to charge rent. We do have good facilities for rental in a charming Museum. Should you plan a function, we hope that you will consider us. The reasonable charge of $200 covers the room and a committee member who will be present throughout to assist you. For more information phone 978-670-2740, leave a message and someone will return your call.

Hours:
Year-round
Saturday Noon-4pm
Sunday Noon-4pm
except holidays.
