Well not really, but you can see a lot. The Visitor Center has a deck/viewing platform on the second level from which you can see the ocean, Provincetown, and various beaches. It's always fun to visit, either during the day or at night. I travel off-season and the center hasn't been open she. I've been there, but no matter. The... More

What a view from the upstairs balcony! The dunes are so pretty, the ocean in the distance, the pilgrim monument on the horizon. What a great location to get a feel for the region. The inside exhibits are informative and the ranger who was present so interesting as she shared more info on nature, the whale activity, birds in the... More

The center is perfectly located to view the sand dunes and water surrounding it. The staff were helpful with directions and a bit of local info.

A great place to watch the sun set in the quiet of nature, after a day of whale watching and calm bake eating. Head down to the beach to watch out for seals at dusk!

Climbing up a staircase gets you the best over-look of the dunes ever! The exhibits inside are interesting and will entertain the kids for 15 or 20 minutes. They even have a movie show.

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
