This museum tells the fascinating story of Cape Verdean Americans and their culture. Cape Verde was a Portuguese colony, located off the coast of West Africa, that gained independence in 1975. Men and women from there migrated to New England in the 1800s and onward, working on whaling ships and Cape Cod's cranberry bogs. They brought with them a unique culture—part African, part European—and have continued to have strong bonds with their mother country to this day. Their story is a fascinating one and this museum, the first of its kind in the country, tells it with well-organized exhibits and rare artifacts.

In 1984, seven members of Trinity Rep Conservatory established this theater to bring high culture to the area. However, in 2003, the stage outgrew its former space and moved to a larger one in Pawtucket. The name is an homage from local benefactor Alan Shawn Feinstein to his sister, Sandra Feinstein-Gamm. Today, the stage is housed inside the historic and grandiose Pawtucket Armory. The armory still stands larger-than-life just as it did when it was built in 1894 and is an attraction even from the outside. Inside, the 131-seat venue is very intimate and the Pawtucket Armory Arts Center allows visitors in even if they don't have a ticket to view a show.
