Spring Updates and Information

The virus pandemic has caused RIMOSA to adapt our operations, but we are OPEN and delivering the same high quality programming both on-site and in the community!

Make an appointment to visit the museum  

We have time slots available Thursday through Sunday, click here to book your time!  We are allowing only one group at a time for safety, so you will have the place to yourselves!  More information on museum visits can be found on our Plan Your Visit page or you can email gschneider@rimosa.org with any questions.

Have you heard about our take-home programs and kits? 

We adapted 6 of our most popular Artists and Inventors programs into activities you can do at home, at any time!  Click here to place an order, and for more information view our Take-Home Kits page.  We are also developing a second series of 6 activities that will be available later this Winter.

We are available to deliver our outreach programs in-person or live online  

If your school, library, homeschool or other community group is interested in booking, please contact dbrunton@rimosa.org.  We can work within your existing COVID-19 protocols to deliver a safe, engaging educational program that keeps kids learning, working with their hands, and having fun! 

We are looking for more Freelance Educators!

Are you an educator/artist/scientist/creative person? Do you have experience working with ages 8-14? Live in Rhode Island?  Learn more about it and send us an inquiry here!

We have launched a new initiative to reach out to populations that have been overlooked in the past. 

We are available to bring our programs into communities such as foster families, kids who are hospitalized or in congregate care, incarcerated youth, adults in day programs and care facilities, and older adults in senior centers or nursing homes.  Our programs can be delivered live and in-person, live online via Zoom, or on your own time at your own place with pre-recorded video guidance.  Whether you are a program director at a facility, a direct service professional, social worker, or a group of parents and individuals in the community, we can find a way to bring our programming to you or arrange for an on-site program at our museum and adapt it as needed.  Contact Us for more information.
