Hidden Gem

A beautiful little place to stop on a gray day on Cape Cod. Tucked away off route 6A in Dennis, it holds a nice collection of local art. I only wish it was larger!

A nice place to come on a non beach day. The grounds are lovely with many sculptures. I my visit the museum had a class of some sort that took command of most of the interior space. It would have been lovely to quietly browse through the museums exhibits but that did not happen this time!

A hidden gem in the village of Dennis! This amazing Museum tucked behind a delightful cinema and a 90 year old play house houses an amazing collection of regional art which captures the uniquely vibrant colors of Cape Cod and the Islands. Not only is this museum a fabulous setting for beautiful local art but it is a place which... More

The museum offers art displays appropriate for both young and old. There are Saturday morning sessions specifically for kids (check the schedule) and a museum shop. The grounds are beautiful as well and right next door to the playhouse (if you like theater).

When we went in we were told a docent might be there in 1/2 hour if we were still there. She could not guarantee he would show. My husband and I looked at each other and said of course we will be here. We were not. There is not much to look at. The pieces that are exhibited appear to... More

Members are treated to frequent receptions with artist lectures and a variety of exhibitions. The latest is a glass sculpture exhibit in tandem with a local studio (12 artist weekly, 3 hour painting session) reception/lecture. Both events were stimulating and interesting with broad Q&A audience participation.

We decide to have a look on a rainy day here and came away with a mixed reaction. We loved the glass exhibit. There were some beautiful pieces. The "After Hopper" was nice but nothing special. As for the remainder of the works displayed in this museum, we could not help but think that some of them were hanging on... More
