About the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation

The mission of the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation is to encourage and inspire future innovation in America. We do this, through our collections and programs, by:

  • exploring the historical impact of industry on American culture

  • examining the dynamic process of innovation

  • celebrating our location in Waltham as a foundation of the American Industrial Revolution

  • connecting the expertise of older generations with the inquisitiveness of young people; and

  • delighting audiences of all ages with an engaging Museum experience. 

Corporate Partnership Goals

Our Sponsorship Opportunities package offers a variety of educational and cultural programs. As we build relationships with organizations and together grow our presence locally and nationally, we can also expand our outreach by partnering with innovative institutions to produce unique programming at our site.

Why Corporations Should Partner with the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation

We are a physical location where the American industrial revolution began.  We are located on the site where the corporate model was established with an investment of $400,000 in 1813 to create the Boston Manufacturing Company.  We are the site where "integrated manufacturing" became a reliable business model for the first time, as raw cotton goods came in and finished cloth goods went out.  We are the site in which a major working population had to be created, where before one did not exist; thus began the first use of a predominantly female workforce, the “Mill Girls.”

People, technology, and money are the three forces that make innovation happen.  We celebrate past innovations and seek partners to support future innovations just over the horizon.
