About the Museum
While the women featured in the Women at Work Museum may not be listed in history books, this in no way diminishes their real role in history, their commitment to intellectual challenges, and their contributions to the communities in which they lived and worked. As leaders, regardless of recognition or reward, they pursued their interests and made significant advances in math, science, engineering, and technology. As an educational center, the Museum presents to visitors the full scope of the achievement of women today as well as in the past.
Since opening, Nancy Young, president of the Attleboro Jewelry Makers, has provided approximately 3,000 square feet of space for the Museum, which is located in downtown Attleboro and easily accessible to interstate highway.
Since 2003, WAW has had 7 major exhibits and over 100 events that were free and open to the public. Museum events include:
The Museum has received support from around the country. Many organizations have made donations as well as sent volunteers and created exhibits.
The Women at Work Museum is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We are supported through the kind generosity of members and museum visitors like you.
