What a cool place! You must visit this museum, plain and simple. Founded in 1963, and located in Bristol, RI really sets the stage by appreciating the arts and exhibiting / educating the local community. With its new space (formally a barn) located on the grounds of the 200 year old Linden Place mansion, the collections have been contemporary and modern. The displays are second to none and well planned out. The grounds are equally as interesting and historic.
