Museum of Work and Culture, Woonsocket

You will begin your museum visit by crossing a farmhouse threshold and entering into the experience of life in rural Québec in the 19th century. From there you will cross the border into the United States and begin a journey through the workday world of Woonsocket's residents and immigrant arrivals. Other exhibits recreate the new settler's lives at home, at work and at school and present the story of the Independent Textile Union, which came to dominate almost every aspect of city life.
Museum of Work and Culture is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Woonsocket Edition.
