Unique library with a lot of history especially if you are into searching for the Mayflower adventures. Just around the corner from the hustle and bustle of the shops.

A nice library with a small ship built inside! Anyone visiting Provincetown who has an interest in the history of the town really needs to stop in. Anyone else should just go to see the boat inside ;)
