“Best source of info about the National Seashore.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

We stopped in at the Visitor's Center to get the latest on programs and events. The staff is always helpful, knowledgeable and willing to chat about the area. I bought a senior pass for $10 that gives us unlimited access to all federally managed parks, beaches and preserves for life. What a deal.

Beautiful view of Salt Pond, excellent video presentations, wonderful museum. The park rangers were very helpful. We toured the Atwood-Higgins House, and saw the Penniman House, as well.

“Very Informative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

This is part of the Cape Cod National Seashore. They have movies throughout the day, and excellent views of nearby salt marshes as well as easy hiking trails. There is also a souvenir shop/bookstore with information, postcards and other local memorabilia. It is well worth stopping whether it is your first visit or you have been there many times.

“Great introduction to the real cape cod”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The salt pond visitor center is a must to learn about the Cape, it's geology, history and people. The movies are interesting and the rangers can answer your questions. The small museum shows a lot of the history of living on the Cape and about the whaling industry. So many people come to Cape Cod and never really see the true Cape. This visitor center can help. There are also some hiking trails around Salt Pond that are very nice.
