“Fun Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This was our second time going there. My children really enjoyed the bees. The children are given a scavenger hunt, which was really fun. There is a great little gift shop, too.

“Mud Flat Tour is Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Have been wanting to check out this museum for a while and finally did. Was not disappointed! The Mud Flat Tour was really fun. Learned a ton from the very knowledgable guides. This tour is great for all ages.
The museum has some really neat displays and the staff was great at answering questions and engaging us in the exhibits. Would recommend to all.

“Outstanding Nature Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History is a great place to visit, especially for kids. There are loads of special programs during the summer, superb walking trails, and very nice indoor displays and aquarium facilities. The Osprey Cam is a great way to see these majestic birds up close and you can also watch live online from home.

Museum membership is very reasonable and the best way to visit if you plan to go more than once.

The only caveat is that the place will be mobbed on a rainy summer day when everyone is looking for indoor activities!

“Surprising!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

The museum is small child centric and kind of rinky-dink. But the grounds and paths out to the bay behind the museum are wonderful!
