Took some art lessons from a local artist while on my last vacation. We met every morning on the beach, easels, paints, and brushes in tow, and he taught this eager student -- that oil painting is not my calling. But I was able to check off another item on my bucket list, and it was truly an experience I... More

Several different rooms, with some nice art. Perfect way to spend a half hour...Is situated in East end of PToen...which is much quieter, classier than West End...no t shirt or fudge shops, just generally well curated galleries

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.
