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.

This is a Rhode Island Great Outdoors Pursuit Event.

The Saturday Markets will showcase local vendors displaying craft goods, produce, and prepared food. The events will also feature games, youth activities, and live entertainment. The event will run from 12-4pm.
