|About these ratings|
This hidden gem's five buildings are clustered on the south side of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) campus. Inside, more than 86,000 works of art are on display, including some pieces by Monet, Degas and other Impressionists, and sizeable Medieval and Gothic collections.
One TripAdvisor user recommends, "If possible go on Sunday before [1 p.m.], when admission is 'what you wish' (parking wasn't too bad then either)." Another Yelp.com user says, "I think they do great work to open their doors to the Providence community and families with the Free-for-All Saturdays and programs, and the Thursday music nights."
You'll find the RISD's Museum of Art on Benefit Street. Hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, with extended hours every Thursday until 9 p.m. (The museum is closed most major holidays as well as the month of August). General admission is $10 for adults, although discounts and free days are abundant. For more information, check out the museum's website.
