Things to Do
The Newport Art Museum was founded in 1912 on the belief that arts and culture have the power to bring diverse groups of individuals together, which ultimately promotes civic engagement and strengthens the social fabric of our communities.
Enjoy artworks from the permanent collection, rotating exhibitions that showcase contemporary artists from around the world, dynamic public programs, performances and films, and art education in the Museum School.
Situated on 75 acres of historically preserved farmland, Newport Vineyards prides itself on the marriage of locally-sourced food with estate-grown wines and fresh hop-forward beer from their on-premise Taproot Brewing Company.
