  • Amazing displays, cheap entry and all around a positive experience.
  • Very cool museum! Worth stopping by.
  • It was very interesting, don't forget to bring your student ID if you have one!
  • Always keep you busy with massive amount contents .
  • I had never heard of this museum until I attended a conference here, but I was immediately mesmerized in spite of my general lack of interest in food preparation. The museum is also an archive and is the largest collection of its type in North America. Highly recommended, it is definitely one of Providence's must-see attractions.
