Although a little tricky to find (it's on the grounds of the Cape Cod Theater) this museum is well worth the trip. Beautiful exhibits by local and New England artists, nicely presented. There is a small sculpture garden on the grounds outside. Plenty of parking and handicap accessible. We particularly liked the placing of art everywhere in the museum--even the... More

Features artists from Cape Cod . A very convenient location with plenty of parking in the same area with the Cape Cod Playhouse and a restaurant to have lunch or dinner while enjoying fine art.

This small museum features regional artists of some stature. The displays are well presented with a nice mix of various media and styles. While I am not a particular fan of the more modern "art", some of the pieces do capture the imagination. We were disappointed that they do not allow photography as other art museums we have visited do... More

My sister teaches oil painting classes at the museum and I had the pleasure of sitting in on one of her classes this past week. (She's a award winning oil painter and I was delighted to observe her and her students.) The museum is set back from the road and offers a lovely setting in a beautiful building. I took... More

My mother and went to ask about summer classes at the Museum of Fine Arts. Both being professional artists, we though it would be a fun thing to do to keep us both painting. The person who greeted us was both snobby and impolite. We told her so and left. Then a friend of mine told me that she went... More

This is a very small but nice art museum. On display during our visit was a collection of paintings of light houses in one gallery and in the other gallery a collection from Anthony Quinn (who knew he was an artist?). Their permanent collection in the basement wasn't as interesting.

The Cape Cod Museum is a gem, well-located near the Cape Playhouse and Cape Cinema. The current Anthony Quinn exhibit (until August 25) is outstanding! Well worth the trip.

A beautiful regional museum with inspiring temporary exhibits as well as an important collection of local artists. If you are in the area for a while consider taking one of their art classes. A particular shout out to Nat Doane who teaches beginning and advanced pottery classes.
