Providence Area Attractions

A visit to Providence offers easy access to many attractions, universities, shops, sporting event venues and restaurants. The city is home to several museums, including the RISD Museum, part of the famed Rhode Island School of Design; the John Brown House Museum, a landmark from the 18th century; and the Governor Henry Lippitt House Museum, an American National Historic Landmark. For families, we have the Museum of Natural History and Planetarium, the state's only natural history museum and public planetarium; the Providence Children's Museum, a hands-on museum for children; and the Roger Williams Park Zoo, home to scores of animals in naturalistic settings. Theaters, galleries, outdoor adventures and more make Providence a place to get up and go.
