Have you ever wondered what makes an elevator move?

Are you curious about what's hidden in elevator shafts?

You can learn about that and more at The Elevator Museum Inc., 145 Essex St. — one of the only brick-and-mortar museums of its kind. 

The museum has items that date back to the 1800s. You can learn how a water hydraulic elevator operated and see an original shipper rope freight elevator.

There's plenty to look at — the museum has more than 4,000 antique elevator artifacts.
