    We live in the south shore of Massachusetts so Providence and Boston are almost equidistant from our house. I took my son here for something to do while the wife was away and couldn't have been more i...  more »

    We had a pass for 1/2 off from our local library, so it was a really good deal. While the museum is quite small, there are a couple of really fun activities. My 5-year old loved loved it.  more »

    While in Narragansett for a family vacation, we got ambushed by cold wet weather. Needing to get out of the house for a while, we went to this museum. The cost was $9 per person, but due to a partners...  more »

    This place was awesome. We're from Saint Louis and we have The Magic House which is similar but this blew it out of the park. My daughter loves playing in water and is small for a two year old, so it's hard for her to play at The Magic House, but this had different levels for different ages. She also loved the upstairs and climbing up the tree and going down the slide. There were also a lot of places for parents to sit down if they needed to.

    Very fun and educational, but mostly geared towards children in the 4-6 age range. However, when the warm weather comes and they open outside its great for kids 7-9...If your kids are any older than 9 they'll be bored out of their skulls. The staff are great and they usually have interesting programs scheduled. One complaint...Only children ages 4 and under can play in what I think is most fun area in the entire museum- the "reading forest" area with a slide. However, sometimes you'll get lucky and go on a day that the age limit is not strictly enforced.

    Great place to take our grandchildren when visiting from out of town. We bought the year pass which is a bargain for all families. The kids just love it there and never tire of visiting.

    Very close quarters, with no much room to enjoy the various activities. Great for kids ages 3-7, but again always seems crowded with very little space to move around.

    This place is awesome. Took 5, 3 and 2 year olds for our 1st time on a Sunday morning at the beginning of April. Parking was easy, though Google didn't know where the lot and front door were, so we had to use our brains a bit (on the hospital side, btw). Once inside, everyone was active, entertained, and even a little awed. It's big enough to keep everyone active, but not so big as to be overwhelming. The 5 year old is already panning or next visit. We're excited to go back!

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.
