Convenient to downtown convention area. Currently features an exhibit of Andy Warhol as well as a variety of other artists.
The original art works you find in the gift shop is amazing. I always visit this first, that way I know what to expect when I visit the museum. It doesn't take out the fun in it for me, it enhances my knowledge of whats about to happen. That's exciting. I've been to museums all over the world and this... More
If you go during the week you will have the place practically to yourself. The priceless antique furniture is amazing and the current American painters exhibit is wonderful

I live in Providence and have visited museums in Boston, NY, Philadelphia, and Paris. I consider it an incredible treat to have this Museum in walking distance of my home.
