The RISD museum is a great little museum. It is small, but has a nice overview of art from ancient Egypt and Rome to very contemporary pieces. I was surprised with their Impressionists (Van Gogh, Manet, Degas, Monet). They also have rooms with Colonial furniture...More
Diverse, eclectic and world class collection! Fantastic location, although parking can be a challenge, but this should not be a deterrent. Walk the grounds at Brown or along the canal after your visit. One of the best restaurants in RI is right across the street!...More

I believe we went on a Tuesday, it was a few months ago. I believe it was 15.00 to get in. There were donation boxes along the way if you were inclined to offer to donate more money. There was also a student section that just displayed there new creations and I believe you could offer some money for them too. There website will help you in making your trip to RISD.

If you're looking for free parking, there's not any for the museum. The best option, if you're up to walk a few blocks, is probably to park on Congdon St. I believe it was after 10am you could park free for the entire day... More
If you're looking for free parking, there's not any for the museum. The best option, if you're up to walk a few blocks, is probably to park on Congdon St. I believe it was after 10am you could park free for the entire day, or something like that. Otherwise the metered or time-limited street parking surrounding the museum that other folks have mentioned.
