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.

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
