“great views, more info and maps,”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

there are movies inside on the history and geology of the area, plus the rangers give out maps and info on hiking. Also the center has 3 levels with balconies for great views. We got in a hike to a Lifeguarding museum. More info on that in my Cape Cod National Sea Shore review.

“Gorgeous views”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

The Province Lands Visitor Center commands some of the most beautiful views on the Cape. The panorama of the dunes is spectacular. Very informative exhibits in the center.

Wanted a room close by the whale pier. We were set up in the perfect place to stay. We were in walking distance to the ship and saved the $30. parking fee. Kudos ladies!!

“interesting and informative movies”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The short movies they show are definitely worth watching. We saw two of them - one about shipwrecks around Cape Cod and another about the ever-changing land mass of Cape Cod.

“Nice View and Information”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

My fiance and I came here to get our beach bonfire permit for Herring Cove beach. I've been here several times before but I'm always impressed with the visitor center. There is usually a ranger on staff who can tell you a lot of information about the area.

They usually have free movies running every 20 minutes or so with history about the area. We watched one about whaling in the early 20th century. They also have a little gift shop with lots of cool 'National Seashore' stuff, so we bought a few things (although it's kind of expensive). The view out on the observation deck is really something to see.

One downside to this place is the tourist buses that stop here and suddenly the place is packed with people.

Overall this place is worth a stop for some cool Cape Cod gifts and to get some good info on the area!
