Dedicated to sharing the stories of the men, women, and children who came to find a better life in Rhode Island’s mill towns, the Museum of Work & Culture’s exhibits allow visitors to imagine themselves in the position of these industrious immigrants. Whether it is the journey from a nineteenth-century farmhouse to the floor of a textile mill or becoming immersed in early twentieth century culture in a triple-decker parlor, parochial classroom, or union hall, the Museum is sure to bring history to life for visitors of all ages.
