The RISD Museum is the place to be the last Saturday of every month. I admit it, my family and I are groupies. Through their creative monthly programs, they open up the art world to our kids. They teach them how to see, create, learn and experience different art forms, cultures, and parts of the museum.
Each month the museum plans a schedule of events based on a different theme (e.g. colors, heros, Degas) – including 2 crafts, a scavenger hunt and a live performance. Whether you have toddlers or older kids – there is something for everyone in these events. This event is Free-for-All the last Saturday of every month, 11am-4pm. Come for an hour or stay for the whole program.
Plan ahead and pack some snacks. There is no cafeteria or place to buy food in the museum or very nearby. You can picnic in a small floor space in the basement. Once the museum completes its grand renovation in a couple of years, there will be a cafe.
Parking is usually available on Benefit Street or area sidestreets.
