The Museum of Primitive Art and Culture welcomes 10,000 visitors every year and is located just a stone?s throw away from the Peace Dale Library. The museum features South Seas, Indian, African, and American Indian collections of ethnological and archaeological artifacts such as tools, weapons, and utensils and of course artworks and crafts. The museum, however, is best known for its Public Education Program, which it started in 1978. Programs are meticulously designed to ensure that there are activities especially suitable for each grade level from middle school to college. Adult programs are available as well.

Examples of public programs of the museum are Early Rhode Island Life for 4th to 6th grades, The Inuit as well as Dinosaurs and Fossils for preschool to 4th grade, and the Culture and Ethnicity of Historic Peace Dale, a community walking tour that?s perfect for anyone between 2nd grade students and adults. For the adults, there are periodic workshops and Brown Bag Luncheon programs being held as well as a Garden Tour every year.
