I like art and visit all museums when I travel. It is good to support the local museums. It was not too big that we felt rushed or missed anything. It was just the right size to step in out of the heat and view the work.

A great little museum that has a number of exhibitions throughout the year. They also have an annual show of current art related to or made by Provincetown artists. Perhaps finding artistic inspiration in Marcel Duchamp, but lacking in the practicalities of actual industrial designers, the urinals they have installed in the men's room seem to be living things -...

Small and charming museum... in a modern building offering a small but eclectic collection of mostly local artists. Also hosts concerts

Stopped in while waiting for family members in a Friday evening and the exhibits was awesome. Upon walking in you think it's just two or three rooms but there are several plus a small gift shop. Glad I stopped in.

Art is big in Provincetown and this its spiritual home. This lovely, light-filled museum has a wide variety of mediums and is well worth a visit.

Love this museum with its emphasis on local cape cod artists in general and Provincetown artists in particular. Became a member a while ago; which I recommend not only because the membership supports the museum and its activities but also because it allows me to attend openings and participate in lectures and other activities at no or reduced cost.

Wonderful little museum filled with art that is uniquely Provincetown's. We loved the pride PAAM took in the abundant history of P-Town's artist. This place is a must see for art lovers on the Cape.

It has a wonderful book shop as well as some very good art to look at on the walls which changes periodically. The fellow at the desk was extremely kind. My bad leg was acting up and I could not stand long enough to look at the paintings in rooms with no benches, so he got me a folding chair.
