This museum was a random find while in New England during Hurricane Sandy. They have collections including porcelin, Buddha, asian textiles, contemporary art and some more historic art. A nice way to spend a couple of hours.

I was referred to the museum by the Renaissance Providence Hotel, the recommendation from Thomas to visit your museum was exactly what my husband and I were looking for ... such a great discovery, it delighted us on all levels. Superb!!
