The Culinary Arts Museum of Johnson & Wales University is the place for a journey into cooking history from olden days to modern times. The collection of more than 500,000 items includes utensils dating back to ancient Egypt, Greece, and China; kitchen gadgets and equipment; an extensive collection of cookstoves; and thousands of cookbooks—the oldest dating to the early 1500s.
Visitors can step into a colonial tavern and a classic 1926 art-deco diner. Equally interesting is the presidential exhibit of items and writings that serve to reveal the formal and informal relationships of America’s leaders with food and dining. Don’t miss the museum’s tribute to the world’s greatest chefs.
Open Tues. – Sun. Closed major holidays and during school breaks. Admission charged.
