Behind Every Door is a Story

Inspiring wonder, curiosity and pride in our communities by connecting the public to the great places of our state

DID YOU KNOW that the largest collection of fresco paintings in North America is located in Woonsocket, or that there is a 250 sf replica of Angkor Wat outside of a Buddhist temple in Cranston? Have you visited the oldest penny arcade in the country, located on a secluded beach in Burrillville? It’s all here in Rhode Island.

In partnership with cultural and community organizations across the state, Doors Open RI is providing behind-the-scenes access to Rhode Island’s best-kept secrets through an online publication (coming soon!), programs and tours planned throughout the year. It will all culminate in a FREE annual open house festival that will pilot in Providence on September 23, 2017.
