Been here twice now for shows. No real bad seats in the house ... so you don't have to pay the full freight of a premiere seating choice if you don't want to or can't afford it. The cheaper seats are just as good and you'll see well. I prefer the balcony seats. It's an older building so the one... More

It is a pity that this hall does not offer more than public restrooms. The paintings in the stairways are intriging. But there is explication.

Located right downtown, this impressive building is a part of American history and a must see while visiting Cape Cod.

If you were walking down commercial Street in the town hall building is open take a minute and step inside. Stroll the hallways looking into all of the offices and you will see an amazing collection of American artist hanging on the walls.

Restrooms on second floor! Clean. Building has been refurbished and you can go in and get some relief from the sun. Sit outside and be entertained by ever changing singers, musicians etc .Can't miss it on Commercial Ave.In front of the Monument.

The building is lovely and the view and acoustics are very good. Perfectly located to have a nice dinner, then stroll over for the show. I have not been there in the daytime but would go back to stroll around and admire the grounds and interior. We saw Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka as part of the Town Hall... More

The Town Hall is now the #1 location for the better known and popular performers to perform. We saw Cyndi Lauper, Cher and many others here. Pretty good acoustics as well.

I was glad I dropped in here. Besides being a beautifully kept building and piece of architecture, it was a place I could chat to two local ladies who were manning the information desk and were very welcoming. They encouraged me to enter the hallway and view the paintings and panelled hallway and to view the massive hall upstairs. It's... More

A very interesting quaint historic structure. Restoration work recently completed. It has several very large paintings by the great Provincetown artist Charles W. Hawthorne (founder of the Cape Cod School of Art in 1898)
