Where would we be if not for the scientific breakthroughs allowing us to see clearly?
Paying respects to the optical industry as a whole is the Optical Heritage Museum in Southbridge. The museum is home to thousands of historical artifacts created by American Optical, ZEISS, or SOLA. At the museum, you can see the very same devices that were used to make many of these historical breakthroughs possible.
Wandering through each display, you get a small glimpse into the history of the optical industry. You can browse at your own leisure, or take a guided tour led by the museum curator.
