After Dark at the John Brown House Museum
***We are currently sold out.  Thank you so much for your interest!***

On April 21, 6:30-8:30pm, the Rhode Island Historical Society's "After Dark at the Museum" will give visitors the rare opportunity to tour the John Brown House Museum by (battery-operated!) candlelight and discover what went on during private evenings  and late nights  at home in the late 18th century.  

After Dark at the Museum will cover such topics as:

After-dinner drinking & entertaining
Seduction novels that were in vogue
Providence's brothel riot
Pre-marital sex and pregnancy
Unchaperoned excursions with members of the opposite sex
"Disorderly" women and the "sources of dissipation" they frequented
Rhode Island's notorious "Green Cottage" and other morally questionable entertainment

As part of the RIHSs Fashioning Rhode Island programming theme for 2016, this is a special one-time event that will show the private side of public history. Visitors will be encouraged to make their way through the John Brown House Museum at their own pace, and they will have the opportunity to speak with docents and RIHS staff stationed throughout the first and second floors. Historically accurate refreshments will be served.

Please select a 6:30 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. entry. Due to fire codes, we can only allow a limited number of visitors in the Museum at a given time.
