A Preserve Rhode Island property

Experience Lippitt House
A National Historic Landmark, Lippitt House has one of the best preserved interiors in America, allowing visitors to experience exceptional Victorian design and American craftsmanship. Following the Lippitt family’s example of public service, the museum’s cultural programming promotes civic engagement, the arts, and history of Providence. 

Lippitt House Museum is temporarily closed to the public. We are following State of Rhode Island public health guidelines and will again offer public access when it is safe for both staff and visitors.

During this temporary closure, please visit the Women's Suffrage page, which is being updated with new content related to the centennial of the 19th Amendment. To learn fun facts about Lippitt House Museum and for some peaks behind-the-scenes, follow Lippitt House Museum on social media.
