School Programs 


Experience Colonial History locally with field trips to the Smith-Appleby House Museum!


     The Smith-Appleby House Museum offers students and school groups the opportunity to experience Early American history by offering a host of historically – themed, interactive educational programs designed entertain as well as educate.

     The museum offers a real-life context to the history students learn in their classroom.  Costumed volunteers and guides provide a hands-on opportunity for students to experience what life was like in Colonial Rhode Island.

     The programs are offered “by appointment,” so that staff can consult with educators to specifically craft programs that will meet their goals for their students.

     Programs are also available for historical groups, community associations, clubs, and other organizations.

     In addition, the Smith-Appleby House Museum offers events and activities throughout the year for the general public, including Colonial militia & military encampments, arts & crafts, baking classes, historically-themed dinners, and Holiday celebrations.

    See our Events page.
