We were looking for things to do in RI this summer away from the Newport/seaside summer crowds. When googling what to see inland, we came across information for St. Ann’s Arts and Cultural Center. We toured on a Sunday afternoon and were in awe of the frescoes. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the history of this former church, the... More

This place is so amazing inside. They filmed the 3rd Purge movie inside but it didn't show so much of it's beauty. You should definitely give it a personal viewing.

Absolutely wonderful. By far the best Christmas concert I've seen in a long time. I will definitely plan on attending any Holiday concert that St. Ann's has each year. Have never been disappointed. .

I went to the Christmas concert at St. Ann's last night & it was wonderful. St. Ann's was beautifully decorated too. I've been several times for the tour & will definitely go back again. Amazing place. Everyone should go there. It is definitely a local treasure!!!!

Truly an incredible artistic feat. Worth a special trip to northern RI to visit this gem! - You won't see anything else like the ceiling and wall frescoes without a trip to Europe!

Who needs to go to Europe when you have St. Ann right in Rhode Island? We went for their annual breakfast, which was delicious. We had an amazing tour. The church is so beautiful. The stories the docent told were wonderful and he was so knowledgeable. The volunteers have strong ties to the church. We are lucky they formed a... More

This place should be much better known than it is. Inside this large church are the most phenomenal frescos that have to be seen to be believed. The church is 100 years old and the frescos date from World War II. It's volunteer and donation run, so do your bit and visit this American treasure.

Went for an annual meeting and had appetizers. The meat pie was fabulous along with the spring rolls. I loved the fruit and veggie platter with dips. I could have eaten a whole sandwich of the chicken salad with walnuts.

Sunday Tours are a must and will be available starting this April. Check out their website for the starting date. This wonderful venue can be rented for weddings, graduations, parties and so many additional uses. Just contact Wally Rathbun and Dom Doiron at the Center. They are the greatest and are so helpful in assisting you in planning your event
