  • Amazing early American historical artifacts, maps, portraits etc. Really a one of a kind museum, given the rarity and value of some of its ostentatious furnishings on show. Well worth a visit. Also featuring a newly added exhibit room which focuses on the tragedy of “The Sally”, an ill fated (yet all too archetypal of the era) slave trading expedition organized by early benefactors / founders of Brown University
  • Visiting Providence, we were at a loss for what to do on a Monday afternoon. I found this place whilst trying to find a museum or something, and what a stroke luck!! Touring the John Brown House turned out to be a very good time. It was educational, but also interesting (this is coming from a fun-loving, 30-something). We elected to walk around with a tour guide (no extra cost), and he was wonderful! Never boring. He gave the tour like he was telling a story. The house is beautiful and they let you wander about and take photos too. It was not busy when we went, and we spent about 2 hours there total.
