The American Labor Museum is housed in the 1908 Botto House National Landmark. The Botto House was built for and owned by Italian immigrant and silk mill worker, Pietro Botto and his wife Maria.

The museum features changing exhibits, restored period rooms and Old World Gardens that reflect the lifestyle of an immigrant family of the early 1900's, a free lending library (including books, audio and video cassettes, CD's and DVD's) and a Museum Store.  Exhibit receptions, lectures, poetry readings, teachers' workshops and other special events are offered.

The Museum's education program provides on-site fieldtrip programs, including Millworker/Millowner (in conjunction with Lambert Castle and the Great Falls Visitors Center) and Labor Education Tour (in conjunction with the Paterson Museum and the Great Falls Visitors Center) and virtual fieldtrips via videoconferencing (distance learning). Scouting programs, Saturday Labor Art classes, home-schoolers and after-school tours, lessons and, activities are available.
