RI Museum of Science and Art

"The Rhode Island Museum of Science and Art (RIMOSA), a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is a group of imaginative people committed to a single goal: using Rhode Islands’ rich resources in the arts and sciences to create a distinctive, highly interactive, informal learning center.

South County Museum

"Explore history in the one-room schoolhouse, carriage barn and carpentry shop. Watch artisans at work in the blacksmith shop and print shop. Wander through the Canonchet Estate stable ruins, visit the Rhode Island Red heritage flock and our other farm animals. Our grounds feature heirloom flower and herb gardens, and they are bounded by woods, meadows, and salt marshes accessible on marked walking trails." - from the website 7/6/18
