We thought about visiting this museum with our little girl on our own but then decided to opt for tot tour so that she would be with our kids and we are so glad we did. All the kids were engaged in activities that taught them how to look at art and express what they see. There was also a lovely read lot session. This and other kids-oriented tours are Free with admission, but you have to register ahead of time.

This is a wonderful art museum located on Rhode Island School of Design campus. They have a fantastic collection including Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Renoir, Eames, Frank Lloyd Wright, etc and also some ancient art works. Best of all, it's free every Sunday! It's definitely worth checking out.

We usually get to visit Providence in the spring. If the graduating senior show is up at the museum I highly recommend visiting. I think this is one of the best ways to see what's going on creatively in the young art world. Talk about innovation and fresh thought.

The RISD museum offers a ludicrously wide selection of art, both in permanent and temporary exhibitions. Everything from ancient asian bodhisatvas to Renaissance and 19th century painting, to modern - all packed in a tiny space. It's quite remarkable how much art they've packed into this place, and well worth whatever the general admission is these days. Brown & RISD students get in free!
