Robinson Research Center

121 Hope Street, Providence

Wednesday-Friday: 10am – 5pm

At the Mary Elizabeth Robinson Research Center (RRC), visitors can gain valuable experience working with RIHS’s vast collection of printed items, manuscripts and graphics. They can read through the original diaries written by RI residents or examine old pictures of RI to see firsthand the dramatic changes in the state’s skyline. As visitors use RIHS collection, they will not only  learn strategies for researching in archives and handling primary sources, but also develop a deeper connection to their local history.
