Founded as the Rhode Island Children's Museum in 1976, the Providence Children's Museum is the only museum of its kind in the state, and it is an excellent place for children of all ages to explore, discover, and learn through active play. The museum presents interactive, hands-on, and play-based programs and exhibits for children between the ages of 1 and 11 to explore a range of genres, with everything from science, engineering, and math to technology, arts, and culture.
If you are looking for fun things to do in Providence RI for the whole family, this is a great place to visit.
Embracing a broad variety of learning styles, abilities, and forms of creative expression, exhibits such as “Water Ways,” “Play Power,” and “The Children’s Garden” aim to increase the awareness of learning and provide a fun-filled environment in which to do so.
