Peer into the basement
September 23, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm| FREE
The John Brown House Museum will be free and open to the public for Doors Open RI and Smithsonian Museum Day Live. There will be special curator-led behind-the-scenes tours of the basement, which itself has been a subject of myth and rumor. Learn about the history of how the basement was used by past owners while peering at the Rhode Island Historical Society’s object collections storage. Basement tours will take place at 10:30, 1:30, and 3. Space is limited for these tours and will be first come, first served.
