Parking is never easy on college hill but the hassle is worth it to visit. Lots of historic pictures, artifacts and a house visit is available.
I love this quirky museum. I especially like the rooms with the decorative arts and New England furniture. I also love their medieval and Renaissance rooms. Really worth a visit.

This museum is a great small art museum, which covers all periods and styles. We went here before touring RISD with our prospective student. The museum is free if you are taking a RISD admissions tour. It covers all the main art periods and many in between. I would love to be a student at RISD and go there regularly.
This museum is quite large has so many different types of exhibits. We had a great time, but got a little lost. Definitely worth a visit. You'll see unique art that you may not necessarily see anywhere else.
