Fodor's Expert Review South County Museum

Narragansett Museum/Gallery

On part of early-19th-century Rhode Island governor William Sprague's former estate, now a town park, this museum founded in 1933 holds 25,000 artifacts dating from pre-European settlement to the mid-20th century. Six exhibit buildings include a printshop, a smithy, a carpentry shop, and a textile arts center. A living-history farm has Romney sheep, Nubian goats, and a flock of Rhode Island Red Heritage chickens, the state bird. Attending the annual chick hatching is an Independence Day tradition for local families.
