foodmuseumSummertime is approaching so it is time to start planning some fun summertime family adventures. However, with gas prices going sky-high, you want to find somewhere unique and interesting for all ages right?

Consider the Culinary Arts Museum at Johnson & Wales in Providence, Rhode Island. This museum has many exhibits including: wedding cakes through the centuries, home kitchens, commercial kitchens, knives and menus.

Along the way, you might stop for a “bite” at the hot dog wagon, have a “drink” at the Art Deco bar, “down” cocktails on the First Class Deck of the Queen Mary, or you can even get in the kitchen of the Little Chef Diner and “whip up” a California burger and fries.

This museum would be a fun trip for ages 2-200 so add to the list of things to do in Rhode Island this summer.

The museum hours are: Tuesday – Sunday 10:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M. They are closed Mondays & major holidays. The cost of admission is $7 for adults; Seniors, 62 or over: $6; College Students with valid ID: $4; Children, 5-18: $2; under 5: free. AAA Discount: $1 off adult admission.
