Timely shows and permanent exhibits. As good as and definitely better than the Cape Cod Museum in Dennis. BTW, Provincetown is a vibrant and exciting place; you have not seen Cape Cod arts until you see Provincetown. The PAAM is modern, exciting, timely, and quite worthwhile. The rest of the Cape cannot hold a candle to it. If hub-bub is... More

I am a big fan of the PAAM ~ they always have great weekly and monthly exhibitions and they are very in tuned with the rich art history that Ptown has! A great destination for art lovers!

Expensive entry fee with no discount for seniors. The museum was full of very contemporary art which we could not appreciate.

This museum is very supportive of members. They are allowed to show their works several times per year. The shows are up to date, and focused on Cape Cod and P town painters. They offere summer workshops, classes, etc. It is in the beginning of the East end, Gallery section of town. A MUST see.

the focus of this small museum is artists of the region. P'town has special light, special ambiance. artists have known this for decades, and major masters have come to Provincetown and the outer cape for this experience. the north side of Provincetown is special, more galleries, quieter than the south side, so a visit to the museum offers a nice...

I come here every year and enjoy the exhibits. A good size collection but not too big. Check out the annual 12x12 show/fundraising exhibit.

This place is rich in history and unique exhibits. I am an art lover who knows nothing about art and it is always enriching to see the exhibits here and learn more about the myriad of artists who have travelled through or lived in Ptown. Every July they auction off these tiles that are made by various artists. There must... More

Somewhat away from crowds, I really like this small Museum.. I have been there several times over the years as they always offer new non-permanent exhibits showing interesting works. .. Their book-store offers a great range of Art litterature and.. the atmosphere is very inviting. The garden sculptures are perfectly adapted to the quiet and shady space around the building.... More

Lovely art museum; worth walking around. Friday evenings are free, so go then. It has a gallery of local artists work which is great.
