  • Fantastic experience. Definitely do the audio tour! There were many rare and unique original illustrations you won't find in regular art museums. Note that parking is across the street from the museum.
  • The absolute best! You cannot go wrong in paying a visit to this wonderful gem in the heart of Newport, situated among the other great mansions along Bellevue Avenue. Definitely worth your time!
  • Small and easily navigated museum, easy to park, great collection and great exhibits. The garden and facility is lovely too. Well worth a visit.
  • Very nice little museum close to Newport mansions with interesting paintings and a good store.
  • Extraordinary experience. Wonderful collection of pre-1980s illustrations in a magnificent venue. Note especially how each piece is brilliantly presented in a frame that feels as though it were part of the original. Well worth a special trip to Newport, RI.
