  • I've always liked going here as a kid.😊 And as an adult, bringing my kids and now grandchildren. There's quite a bit of interesting history to learn about. Alot of ppl outside of RI would learn a great deal. Love to draw some of the pictures they have here. It's an awesome place. Small, but very nice building and layout. In one of the 2 Roger Williams Park's. Very historical.
  • Have been here a few times. Great to take school aged children. Lots of taxidermy animals, a space exhibit, and a very cool honey bee exhibit where you can peak into a real working beehive..very well priced! Only a few dollars for a days activity. For the price it can not be beat!
