Stopped here on the ghost tour and after hearing about the cup and boat replica we had to go in. It’s a nice little stop.

You should go to public libraries regardless. But the Provincetown Public Library is a real gem. The building is incredible and you can't beat the view from the reading nooks upstairs.

The library itself is a beautiful building (mainly the 2nd and 3rd floor). There is a ship inside and the view overlooking the harbor stunning! Must visit!

Nice cool place to go in heat of day. Used books for very good prices in two locations for sale and the boat on second and third floors really nice to check out- the masts go throught the ceiling.

I believe it is a public free library. I have never paid for admission. I think there is a donation box. I attended a May poetry reading with refreshments gratis. They also supply free or reduced museum admission.
