Museum of Newport History

Visitors interested in history will find the Museum of Newport History an excellent place to begin a sojourn in the city. The museum offers a comprehensive overview utilising the decorative arts, artefacts of everyday life, graphics, old photographs and audio-visual programmes to bring the past to life. The museum is maintained by the Newport Historical Society and is housed in a restored 1772 building in Thames Street (off Touro Street). Highlights are an interactive computer tour of Newport's historic district and a video tour of historic Bellevue Avenue presented on board a reproduction 1890s omnibus.
