This tour was made possible through the efforts of Peter Hanney of Hanney Property Solutions, who contributed Matterport digitization of the Museum of Newport History,
and Jessika Davis, who arranged digital exhibit text.
The Museum of Newport History is open by donation to the public year-round, which is made possible through the generosity of our patrons and visitors. If you cannot visit Newport, or are not yet ready to visit, Newport’s endlessly interesting history is accessible from the comfort of your home.

“While these times are uncertain and challenging as an elementary educator teaching only virtually, I am extremely grateful for museums and humanities organizations that are sharing their wealth of resources to enhance student learning right now. In the past two weeks, I’ve proudly witnessed more colleagues integrating such resources into their lessons! In the long-run when life returns to “normal,” I sincerely hope teachers frequently continue turning to museums for guidance.” – Kaitlin Costley, NHS Buchanan Burnham Fellow (2015)
