Children's Hour at Tomaquag Museum is held every Wednesday morning from 10:00-11:00am running May 1st through August 28th.  This FREE public workshop for children of all ages features a different interactive lesson every week. This year, with special funding through a USDA Rural Business Development Grant, Children’s Hour will focus each week on traditional uses of Indigenous plants. Through music, dance, storytelling, crafts and Narragansett language, museum educators we will engage with the natural world around us and build an appreciation for the plants that grow in our backyard, providing us with food, medicine, and technology. This program is completely free of charge thanks to funding from USDA and Rhode Island State Council for the Arts (RISCA)! For more information, contact us at 401-491-9063 or email
