Where in Providence would you find a 15-stool diner, a New England Tavern dating back to 1833 and a fully operational Skee-Ball machine, all under one roof? It may sound impossible, but the Culinary Arts Museum has it all. Not only for foodies or chefs, the eclectic array of exhibits appeals to anyone who eats. From ancient Chinese cooking utensils to a play area for kids known as the “Little Chef Diner,” the museum has something for everyone.

  • Very cool museum! Worth stopping by.
  • It was very interesting, don't forget to bring your student ID if you have one!
  • 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.
  • Really cool museum with lots of content at a reasonable price
  • This museum changed my life.
