NEWPORT, R.I. (WPRI) — Visitors to the city of Newport now have a chance to not only learn about Rhode Island’s rich sailing history, but also try their hand at the helm.

The historic Rhode Island Militia Armory on Thames Street is now home to The Sailing Museum.

“Sailing is part of the identity and the heritage of the Ocean State, and particularly Newport. It’s one of the world’s sailing capitals, so to have a sailing museum here just feels right,” executive director Heather Ruhsam said.
