We enjoyed our visit to the Museum. The day we were there they had an historical exhibit of the Cape Cod Playhouse. It was most informative. The people working here are very friendly and helpful. We certainly will visit here again next year when visiting the Dennis area.

This is a wonderful little museum, with revolving exhibitions. The building is modern and very pretty and the gardens are just spectacular. It's a very secluded and peaceful place to spend an hour or two. Be sure to put the address into GPS or phone, the sign from the road is very small and you will drive by it if... More

This is a small museum that houses two galleries for guest exhibitions and a permanent collection in the basement area where there is also an auditorium and a pottery studio. There are also exhibits outside in the small garden. There is a small entrance fee with discount for seniors and ample parking outside.

This is a beautifully situated, well laid out museum representing art of the region by important artists associated with the Cape over the last 100+ years. Look at the web site and you'll see the range of art presented here. Quite a few important artists. Absolutely worthwhile including the grounds.

Lovely spot to spend an hour or two. Reasonable collection for museum size. Permanent collection is in the basement which is not ideal space for exhibition, but is well worth viewing. Peaceful grounds and connected to the Cape Cod Theater via a back road.

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 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 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
