About Museum of Work and Culture
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, immigrants flocked to Rhode Island in search of work and prosperity within the state's mill towns. Their labors—both on and off the factory floor—helped define the culture of the Blackstone Valley. Today, the Museum of Work and Culture preserves their stories for future generations.
