With extensive collections of Colonial and Continental Currency, a Native American peace pipe collection, Charlotte’s Web original illustrations, Thomas Nast political cartoons, Civil War battle flags, and more, the Arconti American Museum welcomes individuals of all ages and backgrounds. Seeking to inspire awe and pride in American Heritage, as well as to diversify the cultural experience for those visiting Cape Cod, the Arconti American Museum exudes a palpable ardor, endearing reception, and personal authenticity rarely matched elsewhere.

“A must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

See up close some extraordinary memorabilia from the Civil War era to a 1960's Harley with side car. A real letter from a Titanic survivor, and actual drawings from the Illustrations of Charlotte's Web. Kids will love the Star Wars life size figures. Put together beautifully and very informative, you're bound to learn something new. The owners take great pride in their collection and are very passionate about their pieces, I have been twice so far and have been given a personal guide through both times, and very much enjoyed it- and will go back again soon.

“hidden jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

We happened upon this special collection and were thrilled with our experience. The Arconti's exhibit their collection in a meticulously elegant and intimate setting. Mr Arconti shared his personal experiences with us and we were awed by the range of his interests; from his harley daviidson to his charlotte webb illustrations to his exhibit on us currency and the real art in the etchings. We look forward to returning again and again as the museum expands.

“unique americana for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

An ecclectic and fascinating collection the whole family will enjoy. Owner and curator Mick Arconti is passionate about history and gives an engaging tour. The museum has something for everything, from early currency to pop culture. This is a wonderful alternative for families who have had enough beach and mini-golf!
