Each year we drive past this museum when we ride on the bike path. This year we decided to stop and check out the outside of this museum. There is a fee to go into the Trading Post, but we just checked out the outside. Nice museum and a part of our early history.

The history lesson was fantastic! Did not know that this trading post was originally built by the Pilgrims. The gardens on the property are also worth stopping by to see. Also on the property are President Grover Cleveland's Gray Gables Railroad Station and a windmill displaying local artists' works. Its located along the Cape Cod Canal so also a great... More

This a nice piece of American history. The setting is beautiful, right on the Cape Cod Canal. The 'tour' is brief and the museum is very small. The museum experience is about 30 minutes tops so plan accordingly. Generally the are very few other people around. Perhaps combine this with a walk on the canal or a picnic.

I have been traveling with my 3rd grade students to Aptucxet for the past 9 years. The volunteers/docents who welcome us each year are knowledgeable and committed to helping our students learn the history of the area. We love having the time to walk the Cape Cod Canal and we are always sure to snap portraits of our students with... More

The person giving the tour is a Native American and very knowledgable. I really enjoyed this talk. I was the only one there at the time and we talked for about 40 minutes.

The Aptucxet Trading Post is well worth taking in while you are visiting Cape Cod. Packed with information about the early settlers and the native Americans. Good for kids, too. Try to catch one of their special events i.e.: The Strawberry Festival and Pirate Day. You can stroll along the Cape Cod Canal while you are there as well.

This is a lovely place to visit for an hour with all ages. It is located right next to the Cape Cod Canal so you can get there by driving directly or by walking in from the Canal bike path. Every time I go it is staffed with smart and witty volunteers who give you a personally guided tour/story of... More
