Three NEH preservation grants helped the Tomaquag Indian Memorial Museum reorganize, relocate, and protect its collections from environmental threats. Improved collections management has made it possible for the rural museum to realize new opportunities—launching six new exhibitions in 2018 and building partnerships with the Providence Public Library, Rhode Island Humanities, and Rhode Island PBS. These successes have positioned Tomaquag to begin crafting a master plan for a new museum space informed by lessons in collections care learned through the grants.
