Block Island Historical Society reviews
This small museum keeps getting better; put it on on your to do list. The Walking Tour of New Harbor is great!!! more »
we did one of the guided tours and it was amazing. We also stopped to see the fish tanks and the kids loved it. The other activities look so interesting, I wish we had done more.
It is a nice building with preserved artifacts. What I found the most The most interesting was, how the water levels have raised and reformed the Rhode Island - Block island area.
