We've been here a couple of times and they have a nice information desk, small museum and gift shop (with many nice Cape Cod items). Definitely recommend for first timers. They also have nice restroom facilities if you need to stop before going out to one of the beaches.

We were on our way to some attractions in the Outer Cape and decided to drop by at this Visitor Center just for a short rest stop. We ended up spending more than an hour. The view of Salt Pond from the center was simply magnificent. There is an auditorium that shows short documentaries as well as a small museum.... More

A gateway and great introduction to the Cape Cod National Seashore. Walking trails, museum, displays, movies, outdoor ampitheather for music and talks, they do things all year round!. Friendly and helpful staff

A great way to get out in the marshes, a completely different eco-system than the beaches in the area. Wear a hat, sunblock, and insect spray. Sandy and flat in some areas but a couple of bridges with steps and a hill or two.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the little museum and loved watching the birds in the Salt Pond. The book store had a great selection of books about Cape Cod and the wild life as well as little souvenirs too.

It has a nice selection of books/maps in the gift store as well as other items. Large parking lot, even for a RV, close to bike path, hiking trails, restrooms, amphitheater. Our favorite bike...

We stopped at this visitor's center to check out the museum, views, films (there were two when we were there in October) and use the facilities. Very clean and very nice on a rather blustery day. The staff were exceedingly helpful in making our visit to Cape Cod productive for what we wanted to visit. Very friendly and efficient. Loved... More

The staff at the visitor center is very welcoming and helpfull. The ranger gave us really good tips about trails and beaches around this area. There is also a museum and a nice shop where we bought some postcards and magnets. We took a quick look into the photography exhibit. The pictures were beautiful.
