Small Business Saturday, #BuyLocalRI, and More at RIHS Museum Gift Shops


Holiday Promotions + Hours

What do you get when you combine Small Business Saturday with #BuyLocalRI *and* FREE admission to the John Brown House Museum & Museum of Work & Culture?

Another opportunity to support the Rhode Island Historical Society, while at the same time finding those elusive perfect gifts for your trendsetting favorite people!

While we don’t quite offer a choice line of leather goods or pricey China from the principal cities of Europe, we do have some novelties and wearing apparel available, along with books, art, and assorted historical bric-a-brac … plus a whole lot of squirrel merchandise, of course.

On Saturday, Nov. 28, the John Brown House Museum (52 Power St., Providence, 10am-4pm) and the Museum of Work & Culture (42 S. Main St., Woonsocket, 10am-4pm) will offer free admission. What’s more, patrons can shop at our RIHS museum gift shops with a 20% discount on all purchases!*

Here are our holiday hours:
