“A small but sparkling gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

While it is not large, the Cape Cod Museum of Art is a jewel, filled with a mix of high quality temporary exhibitions and a small permanent collection. When we visited, the special exhibits were outstanding, one on encaustic art which was a highly unusual grouping of this form of art, and the other an exhibit of works by local students working under the mentorship of local artists that gave us confidence in the quality of art in the future. The docent was helpful and delightful. This museum is a "must see".

“Make a visit to this regional gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

The Cape Cod Museum of Art is a great place to spend an afternoon on the Cape. It is located on the Cape Cod Center for the Arts which includes the Cape Playhouse, the Cape Cod Cinema. Plan a visit to the Museum and then enjoy a movie or a play.

The museum sits on a lovely setting and includes a sculpture garden. The seven galleries are usually nicely curated with the best of regional artists work. Special exhibits are always very enjoyable.

Do not miss a visit to the Museum.

Enjoy!

Another great place to visit when you cannot go to the beach. Good family attraction if your kids are well behaved.

“Friendly arts.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The classes, the art receptions, the fact they support the arts in every way they can. Now with the Pot Luck receptions. Very nice. Thank you.

“it needs support”

Some good Cape-based or inspired art. Small museum but nice space, lovely grounds. We just missed the Provincetown show. :(
