MoWC Events & Exhibits



Beginning Saturday, June 3, the Museum of Work & Culture will be offering walking tours of historic Woonsocket each Saturday at 1pm. Guides will lead groups along the banks of the Blackstone and Main Street, explaining how the river influenced the birth of the Industrial Revolution and how, in turn, the mills environmentally impacted the river. Tours are $8 for adults and $6 for students and seniors. Children under 10 are free with a paid adult admission. All participants will also receive complimentary admission to the Museum.

Groups are limited to 15. Pre-registration is suggested. Reservations can be made by calling the Museum at (401) 769-9675.



On the third Thursday of each month the Museum partners with the Rhode Island International Film Festival for an evening screening of award winning short films from past festivals. Each month’s program has a unique theme. Tickets are $10 at or at the door.

Thursday, June 15, 7pm


Throughout 2017 the Museum will be celebrating holidays with history, food, and entertainment. Funds raised from each event will go toward the Mill Project, a new digital exhibit currently under development at the Museum.

TBA: Oktoberfest
