DID YOU KNOW that the largest collection of fresco paintings in North America is located in Woonsocket, or that there is a 250 sf replica of Angkor Wat outside of a Buddhist temple in Cranston? Have you visited the oldest penny arcade in the country, located on a secluded beach in Burrillville? It’s all here in Rhode Island.
Doors Open Rhode Island connects people to local places of cultural, historical and architectural significance in an effort to bridge communities and inspire new perspectives on our cities. In partnership with a multitude of cultural and community organizations, Doors Open RI provides behind-the-scenes access to Rhode Island’s best-kept secrets through programs and tours planned throughout the year culminating in a biennual free citywide open house festival. Most of our programming currently takes place in our capital city of Providence, but we dream of someday growing into a statewide initiative.
