Happenings at the Culinary Arts Museum

Keep an eye out and an ear open for announcements about upcoming exhibitions and additions to the museum this Fall/Winter:

"Seasons of Sweets: The Timberlake Mould Collection"

This temporary exhibit will highlight an assortment of ice cream and chocolate moulds from the Dorothy N. & Dr. William H. Timberlake Culinary Collection.  Over 100 moulds are set to go on display, organized according to holiday and sports seasons. 

"Culinary Beginnings" - Objects from the Culinary Arts Museum's Collection  Our "Culinary Beginnings" gallery, currently a display of Ancient Chinese and Korean artifacts on long-term loan from the Arthur M. Sackler Foundation, will be enhanced this Autumn with cooking vessels and utensils from the Culinary Arts Museum's collection of Roman, Greek, and Egyptian antiquities. 

"Diners, Still Cookin' in the 21st Century" - The Hesperus Diner 
The museum is preparing for the installation of a unique video theater as part of the 4,000 square-foot diner exhibit.  It will be housed in the bullet-shaped end of the Hesperus Diner, a 1940 Streamliner originally located in Gloucester, MA.

As always, if you have any questions, you can reach the museum by phone at 401-598-2805, or by email at
