Our mission is to steward and interpret natural and cultural collections through exhibits, education and research to inspire people of all ages and cultures to enjoy the natural world, in order to better understand themselves and the world. The Museum of Natural History is Rhode Island’s only natural history museum and is home to the state’s only public planetarium. For more than a century the museum has served as a unique educational, scientific and cultural resource by offering exciting exhibits and programming that provide ways for children and families to learn about our world and its people. Museum is open Friday through Monday from 10am – 3pm. Planetarium shows are at 1pm on Saturday and Sunday. To ensure the safety of visitors, staff, volunteers and the collections, we have implemented enhanced protocols and online timed ticketing system.
