Cute little museum with many stuffed birds and some good displays. Only $2 so worth stopping in with small children.

Robert Zanfordino

Nothing exciting..only 2 dollars...however missed planetarium show...

Alicia Chevrette

Have been here a few times. Great to take school aged children. Lots of taxidermy animals, a space exhibit, and a very cool honey bee exhibit where you can peak into a real working beehive..very well priced! Only a few dollars for a days activity. For the price it can not be beat!

Isabelle Martínez-Muñiz

A beautiful, small museum.

Gerald Smith

Not a great natural history museum but is a nice community asset and worth a stop in, might not be very interesting to younger children but good for a couple of hours.

The museum is great, but we really went there for the planetarium. We have a 3 1/2 year old and a 1 year old, and there is a 4 year age minimum for the planetarium.

Great little museum

Nick Morgan

Meh. Creaky taxidermy museum. Nothing special about it, but it was certainly a "get what you paid for" kind of interaction.

Alexandria Hicks

Went here with my dad and younger brother. It's a nice little museum, for Rhode Island it's exciting for my 8 year old brother. He loved it. Exhibits are very musty and dusty and old. All the information is very out of date. Floor creaks everytime you take a step. It made me very uncomfortable to walk through rooms full of taxidermied animals, as I'm a vegetarian and I love animals, it would be better if there were more physical artifacts in the natural history section. I hated that area. However, I loved the planetarium and the space exhibits, both were so cool!

John McDougal

Tired old school natural history museum. Taxidermy shows it's age.

Ellen M Oliveira

This museum has so much to see! Low admission costs makes it worth repeated visits!

Amanda-Lynne Prior

Cute little museum. But the planetarium show is SO worth it!!!!!!


Thoroughly impressed with the RWP Natural history museum, admittedly my expectations were low because of the small size & only a $2 admission, but I wasn’t disappointed! Absolutely a great hidden gem in RI. Check it out! & for $3 there is a planetarium show (ages 4 and up).

Don Gunther

For what it's worth. They mentioned that they just had an update in their software for the Planetarium and it turned out to be a very informative presentation. Even though the lighting for the mineral display was lacking, I would still give them 5 stars.

I've always liked going here as a kid.

David Michael

Went here on a field trip and loved it. Recommend kids 3-12. The planetarium was better than the museum.

Victorian era taxidermy curated to narrate modern Life with wildlife. A planetarium, minerals, some space stuff. Visit for $2?!

Edgar Vasquez

Aaaa l loved it I even pinshed my self just to see I wasent dreaming

Corinne Winstone

We are on vacation and drove 45 min to get there and hit traffic, so were about 2 min late and they told us that we were locked out and there was no way to let us in. There was only 1 other car in the parking lot we parked in, but they would let our group of 7 people in, most if which were kids. Nothing I said would change her mind. My kids were so disappointed!

Mary Kravets

Great museum


cute little museum. the price tag meant i could easily decide to kill an hour or two here. the collection and information presented was solid & tailored to the area, & staff was nice!

Hannah Goodale

Lovely small taxidermy collection with lots of Victorian charm. Only takes about about 1 hour to see it all. Nice rainy day alternative to the park, educational

Watching Paint Dry

Me and my family went on vacation to Rhode Island and decided it would be fun to go see the museum and most excitedly, the planetarium. In Florida, me and my younger brother always loved planetariums. When we sat down in the room with minimal leg space, my family was optimistic. But as the lights turned off, the projection on the rounded ceiling was so dim and colorless, it was impossible to make anything out. My mother has always been fine with planetariums, but has an issue with claustrophobia. It was so dimly projected, pitch black and tight, that she had a panic attack and had to be escorted. A terribly dissapointing experience. If you want to see a good planetarium, vacation to Florida.
