  • We wandered in here on Veteran's Day and were delighted to find that admission was free that day. There were very few visitors and we were able to look around at our leisure and not fight the crowds. We kept a mental list of several questions for the historians working on the first floor, and they proceeded to share some fascinating bits of history about the furnishings and John Brown and about the history of the settling of Providence.
  • Great place to visit in order to soak up the history of R.I's very own Brown family. It is a must visit if you are a historian or history buff and want to indulge in the life of the people during colonial times.
  • Wonderful historic house. The staff were very informative and friendly. Do give this place a visit when in Providence.
  • We bought tickets at the museum for a walking tour of Benefit Street which turned out to be a very informative and fun way to spend the morning. Our tour guide, Russ, brought us into several of the local institutions (churches, libraries, etc.) and had lots of answers for us about things that were and were not on the tour. Had a great time!
  • Self guided audio tour was a great way to see the house. Pleasant staff.
