This Under-The-Radar Rhode Island Museum Should Not Be Missed

We all know Rhode Island has its fair share of universities, libraries, and more, but did you know that it’s also home to a fantastic natural history museum and public planetarium? This Providence gem doesn’t get the attention it deserves, but we think it’s absolutely worth a visit!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

You can find the museum within Roger Williams Park at 1000 Elmwood Ave., Providence, RI 02907. Admission is $2 per person, and planetarium shows are an additional $3 per person.
