This is a beautifully situated, well laid out museum representing art of the region by important artists associated with the Cape over the last 100+ years. Look at the web site and you'll see the range of art presented here. Quite a few important artists. Absolutely worthwhile including the grounds.

Lovely spot to spend an hour or two. Reasonable collection for museum size. Permanent collection is in the basement which is not ideal space for exhibition, but is well worth viewing. Peaceful grounds and connected to the Cape Cod Theater via a back road.

A nice place to come on a non beach day. The grounds are lovely with many sculptures. I my visit the museum had a class of some sort that took command of most of the interior space. It would have been lovely to quietly browse through the museums exhibits but that did not happen this time!

A beautiful little place to stop on a gray day on Cape Cod. Tucked away off route 6A in Dennis, it holds a nice collection of local art. I only wish it was larger!

A hidden gem in the village of Dennis! This amazing Museum tucked behind a delightful cinema and a 90 year old play house houses an amazing collection of regional art which captures the uniquely vibrant colors of Cape Cod and the Islands. Not only is this museum a fabulous setting for beautiful local art but it is a place which... More

The museum offers art displays appropriate for both young and old. There are Saturday morning sessions specifically for kids (check the schedule) and a museum shop. The grounds are beautiful as well and right next door to the playhouse (if you like theater).

When we went in we were told a docent might be there in 1/2 hour if we were still there. She could not guarantee he would show. My husband and I looked at each other and said of course we will be here. We were not. There is not much to look at. The pieces that are exhibited appear to... More
