    Coming to Rhode Island Exhibit

    Discover Coming to Rhode Island, a playfully reimagined exhibit at Providence Children’s Museum that invites visitors of all ages to embark on an interactive time-traveling adventure to learn about Rhode Island’s immigration history.  Explore an imaginative new gallery that highlights the story of an Irish immigrant who helped build Fort Adams, and join the Fort’s construction crew.  And investigate an array of intriguing hands-on activities that explore culture and diversity and encourage empathy.

    Coming to Rhode Island is supported by The Children's Workshop Foundation; CollegeBound Saver; June Rockwell Levy Foundation; Murray Family Charitable Foundation; The Providence Journal Charitable Legacy Fund; Rhode Island Council for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities; The Ryan Family Foundation; and Nancy Smith Worthen, in memory of Margaret L. Worthen (as of October 11).
