Tsongas Industrial History Center

Temporary Closing

Following guidance from the CDC and recommendations from state and local public health authorities, and in consultation with National Park Service (NPS) Public Health Service Officers, the Tsongas Industrial History Center located at Lowell National Historical Park is closed until further notice. 

Updates will be posted on our website and social media channels.

The health and safety of our visitors, teachers, employees, and partners is our number one priority. The NPS is working service-wide with federal, state, and local authorities and UMass Lowell to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic.
