This is a town hall! If you are visiting provincetown, you can use the bathrooms here, stare at the auditorium and admire its history for five minutes, walk around and look at the art for ten. There really isn't much more to it.

The benefit we attended was held here - a very gracious reminder of a different age. Huge old staircases gave a dramatic flair.

Set right on Commercial Street in the midst of the hectic march of tourists, Town Hall is the central piont for debating public issues and making public policy. Fully restored, it is an architectual gem. Many tourists are drawn by the free public rest rooms on the second floor but miss the expansive auditorium that hosts political and cultural events....

This is a very old courthouse and there is so much history there. It should be seen if you are in Provincetown. Everyone is so friendly and there are small exhibits in the hallways. Lots of old paintings

The restored staircase in the auditorium was part of a $6 million renovation project. Renovation of the 1886 building started in 2008. The walls are painted Victorian-era colors based on a historical paint analysis. The auditorium was previously... More
