The Museum of Westminster

Free! A unique public event in downtown Providence.

On Friday March 5th and Saturday March 6th, two blocks on one of the busiest streets in Rhode Island’s capital will be transformed into a unique pop-up museum about itself.

Hundreds of museum labels will be placed on windows, buildings, inside stores, on lampposts, parking meters, even on people, sharing remarkable stories from one of New England’s most historic areas.

Museum docents and museum maps will be on hand throughout the street. People will also be invited to make their own labels, to wear around their necks and become a part of the exhibit.

Deliberately designed to question what a museum is and who it serves, The Museum Of Westminster Street takes the language and methodology of the museum world, and moves it onto the street.

Full details:

Friday, March 5th, 11:30am-2pm
Saturday, March 6th, 12pm-4pm
