Very friendly Rangers - excellent, informative Visitor's Center. I told my kids to put away their phones and knock it off with the PokemonGo. The Rangers overheard and let the kids and me know that all the PokeStops are near educational signs and that it was okay to play Pokemon just stop and read the signs. So we played Pokemon... More

A great introduction to the Cape Cod natural and human history. The museum is just right, plenty of actual artifacts, dating from the time when Native Americans lived on the Cape, to the arrival of Europeans, and the work lives of early Americans who lived here, especially fishing and whaling. The movies were entertaining--we watched the one on the natural... More

This National Parks facility is much like the one up in Provincetown but both are worth a visit. The small museum is interesting and movies are shown throughout the day.

This is a perfect sight for a gloomy day. Youcan visit the center and learn about the nature side (How it was formed, which creatures live here), the original native population, the history and the wrecks. Or take a long hike or paddle and "see" the creatures.

We stopped by the Visitor Center on our way to our hotel in Eastham. It was a good move because we were able to pick up directions to the beach, a local map as well as information and a beach pass for a person with a disability.
