A must see for families. Great place for a stop to learn more about the local history of the Cape. Learn about native plants, animals with wonderful narratives and displays. A small area to purchase items, mostly books, maps and puzzles. Gorgeous vista views.

Good place to check in when visiting the area. There's a landing where you can look out on the dunes.

A quiet little museum discovered on our bike ride out to Race Point, close to the Provincetown airport. Displays of local native history and development, wildlife, plants and wonderful views of the wetlands and ocean shoreline can be seen here. Perfect for families and everyone. There is a theater showing the development and history of the area and it's local... More

While I can understand mid October is not prime season, disappointed to find the office closed by 2 pm with no literature available for tourists.

We took the trolley and got off here. It was a slow period so we ended up walking back to town. I guess if you have a car it would be better - you could spend more time walking out to the dunes. The walk back though was beautiful. There is a little trail that follows the street. Lots of... More

Amazing storied landscape, close to the beach with birds' eye view of dune country; knowledgeable, friendly staff, varied nature, science and cultural offerings (including short films, performances, plus tours and events for young and old). Good gift-shop too.

It's free! This visitor center was the last stop on our trip up the Cape. The views of the dunes are gorgeous and the visitor center is very nice. Good for a pit stop and a souvenir, too. I would return to hike or bike some trails in the area.

Don't miss it! Free! Be sure to go to the top - you often see whales from there. Great view of the historic dune shacks and so much more.
