We caught this museum the day we arrived in Providence after visiting the John Brown house. There was a special exhibit called the Dandy about men's clothing as well as the permanent collection with Impressionists, Renaissance, sculpture, furniture, porcelains, portraits and a real gem of a mosaic from the Middle East that was very interesting and something we don't often see. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here.

Nice variety of displays and showings to see. Something for everyone. I especially enjoyed the "mansion" display. A full two floors of a private collectors home. Quite unique,
