#3 of 6 in Museums in Providence
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.

Where to stay in Providence

Most of the guest beds in Providence lie in and around downtown; this is the most convenient area to stay in during your visit. Right downtown you'll find a handful of large hotels from national chains. Rooms here can be pricey, but many offer sweeping views of Providence Harbor. Federal Hill features a few locally owned inns, bed and breakfasts, and small hotels in historical buildings. You'll find additional homey establishments around the State House just north of downtown and the College Hill area across the Providence River to the east. Avoid the South Providence area and East Providence across the Seekonk River.
