The People’s Museum at the Westerly Armory is open on Mondays AND Thursdays from 9-4, and some holiday Mondays. There is no charge for tours. The Armory also has a library of military books and books about Rhode Island and the Westerly-Pawcatuck community.
The Armory is not just military. Its museum features memorabilia from the community, but also items which have come across time. The military collection is principally local showing uniforms and artifacts from those of the community who have served our nation.
Westerly Women’s Corner features some of the accomplished women of the community. A sports area displays local sports teams and players from the past to the present. There is Navy Corner, Korea Corner, Coast Guard Corner, displays of hand-made model planes of WWII, Vietnam Corner, and much more.
