We went to this museum on A beautiful sunny Saturday. There were lots of people and families with children and the museum likely had something for all of them. There is a two floor automobile gallery with beautifully kept vehicles, some that you probably won't see elsewhere. There are walking trails and gardens depending on the time of the year... More

I made it a point to come here with my husband this year during our visit to Cape Cod. My husband's grandmother raved about The Heritage and only after visiting did I see why. After paying $18 per ticket, we grabbed a pamphlet with the map of the grounds. I wanted to visit every spot, including the cafe for lunch.... More

The extensive gardens are among the best that you will find anywhere. The auto museum is small but contains cars that you will rarely see. Old Fords stand out in this collection and early 1900 cars are shown.

As always, beautiful grounds, staff working diligently deadheading and digging. We made it this year to see the hydrangas and daylillies in full bloom. Had a perfect weather day - mix of sun & clouds & cool temperature.I like the large blooming chart near the entrance which shows when particular flowers are blooming so one can plan ahead. Also, viewed... More

the heritage museum and gardens at the gateway to cape cod, ma should be a "must" for anyone visiting the area - particularly with children. it's an inspiring piece of work in a beautiful setting quite close to very historic plymouth, ma. i'm not going to go into detail but highly recommend investigating this place and adding it to your...

what a great place to visit. if you like a place that takes you back in history this is a really nice stop. I loved the car museum with such outstanding vehicles that go back to the start of the car as we know it. You can not sit in them but they do have one car for the kids... More

There is a lot of walking to reach the different exhibits but they do offer a shuttle for those who need it. There were Beautifully colored lily's and also hydrangeas in another location. All the plants and trees are labeled if you are interested in that. There is a restored carousal that you can ride on and they have a... More

My husband wanted to visit due to the car museum. The people aren't friendly. We had to pay for our 3 year old to enter the place. My husband said the car museum was great. I love gardens and there isn't much to see. The man made waterfall was the best part of it. Our kids were bored except for... More

A peaceful and beautiful place to be. The garden with all its flowers and trees is very well-tended. Words cannot describe its beauty. There is also a museum with antique cars.

On a couple of trips to the Cape, my husband and I had thought of going here but it was never a priority. On this last trip, it was "Plan B" for our day and turned out to be the highlight of our trip. We arrived at 10 AM when it opened and didn't leave until 3 PM ! You... More
