Cape Cod Museum of Art
Cape Cod is home to a wide variety of museums, but the Cape Cod Museum of Art is one of the most interesting. As the name suggests, this museum focuses on the art of Cape Cod, featuring both local artists and those who have painted or photographed the Cape. The museum is small but nicely curated, and it is worth a visit if you are interested in Cape Cod’s history and culture.
In addition to the art on display, the museum also features Cape-related books, artifacts, and even a few Cape-themed games.
The popular JFK Museum is in downtown Hyannis, so it is a nice part of a downtown exploration outing. The museum is packed with fascinating artifacts and information about JFK and his Cape Cod connection. The museum is also surrounded by beautiful gardens, making it a pleasant place to spend an afternoon.
If you are interested in learning more about JFK or Cape Cod history, the JFK Museum is worth a visit.
Cultural Center of Cape Cod
With five galleries, five resident artist studios, a performance hall, a gift shop, and an education wing that features a culinary arts center, recording studio, pottery studio, maker space, and digital arts studio, the Cultural Center of Cape Cod is one of several Cape Cod museums that help make the Cape a world-class, inclusive space. Whether you are visiting for the gift shop or the art, include the Cape Cod Cultural Center on your ‘must see’ list.
