Small, overpriced with sour staff. The sculptures in the garden outside are lovely so just enjoy them without bothering to go inside. Not worth the entry price.

I never expected to find this gem in Provincetown! An incredible collection of American art - by recognized artists - all with ties to Cape Cod. A very special place with a curatorial focus - this is not your average museum.

Visited Ptown during the snow. It was great to have the opportunity to do some activity beside shopping. We really enjoyed the annual display of uried artwork of the local members.

Provincetown owes much of its modern existence to the artist community and PAAM does a good job of presenting that history. Five galleries with one currently dedicated to the 100 anniversary of PAAM.

PAAM is where you discover the history of the town in art and some of its contemporary art life. It is a cool and calm place to retreat to from the bustle of shopping and dining.

Well worth going in to see some fine art. An oasis of calm in what can sometimes be quite a frenetic experience in Ptown!

Amazing granite tower, the tallest in the USA signifies the museum. Given the lack if infrastructure in the area, this tower is amazing but you need stamina and a head for heights!

I'm glad I discovered this little museum. The art was great to explore, and the bookstore was terrific. I ended up buying three books on the Provincetown artists I had studied--books I haven't seen anywhere else.
