RISD is a treasure-trove of talent and shouldn't be missed on your next visit to Providence. The museum is amazing, but the highlights of RISD are the studios which buzz with massive talent!

We visited the RISD museum and enjoyed their 6 stories of interesting exhibits. Everything from ancient Egyptian artifacts to colonial dress to hand carried wedding carriages. It's a good take and the first weekend of the month it's free with a Bank of America card.
