Island Events & Attractions

Block Island Historical Society Open House

If you like to discover a little more about the place you’re visiting than where the nearest beach is and how late the ice cream parlor is open, head on over to the Block Island Historical Society Museum on Friday, May 25 for their Open House and Porch Party from 5 to 8 pm.

During our “Welcome to the 2019 Season,” you and your gang can enjoy an evening of family fun on the porch of the historic Woonsocket House, home of the Historical Society’s museum and gift shop. Exhibits will be open and the staff and Board of Directors will be on hand to answer questions about Block Island and the museum and collections. Enjoy light refreshments as you learn more about the history and culture of this most special island.

Admission to the museum is usually $6 per person, but it’s free and open to all during this event. To learn more, visit or call 401.466.2481.
