See if you can find the Queen Bee!

A wonderful museum with experiences not to be missed! Small appearance on the outside is deceiving and we weren't dissappointed in any way. Just wished we'd had allowed more time!

So much to see, so much to do, so much to learn. Our ten year old would not leave. Nice trail to walk.

We walked through the paths and enjoyed seeing the birds. Then it opened up to a beach area and we enjoyed the little sand bar over there to swim to.

The highlight of the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History is the aquarium. There are so many varieties of fish and shellfish. The blue lobster is amazing. There are jellyfish, crabs and all sorts of sea life. There are also a number of animal exhibits, as well as a very active bee hive. See if you can spot the Queen... More

Went on a beautiful Saturday and hike the island to the ocean and must say it might one of the most pleasant things I've done on the cape. Absolutely gorgeous - do keep in mind we love to hike and the outdoors so the change up from beach and ice cream all day was very welcome. We don't vacation there... More

On a rainy day this place is packed. The exhibits are well done, but much of it will be above small children. However they do have several activities for children. Small, but interesting aquarium. I have not been on the trails, but I suspect it would be interesting.

The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History is simply wonderful. Our family has been visiting for many years, and while the museum is a bit "static" in terms of change, it delivers the goods it promises in an authentic and personal manner. You do not have to pay admission to use their terrific marsh walk or wander the shoreline. There... More

Visit this museum each year with the kids. They have a live sea animal exhibit that is kid touch friendly.
