The visitor center has a small but nice museum of local artifacts and a nice interpretive movie. There is good view of the pond from the center and trails you can use to down to the pond. The staff was helpful in pointing out places to visit along the national seashore.

A nice stop to get an overall picture of the area and the salt marsh environment. There is a small theater which shows very good shorts on everything from how the cape was formed, salt marsh restoration and the areas whaling history.

This is a nice place to stop and view a small museum and gift shop. It's also a great place for a tourist to get information about the geography and history of the area. The museum is nothing elaborate, but is enlightening for a first time tourist to New England such as we were.

Just driving by, I stopped in. So much to see and do! I watched several short films, I went through the museum and gift shop. I walked thru several exhibits outside, then drove to the shore. It was so interesting, well marked and worth the time for all ages.

A must-stop spot for in-depth information about the National Seashore Park. Very helpful, friendly Park Rangers at the information desk are happy to share their knowledge about the many walking, cycling opportunities within the park. Make sure you take the time to walk the marsh trail located adjacent to the amphitheatre behind the Visitor Center. The Ranger I spoke with... More

The visitors center has some great short videos that provide a lot of information about the area and the history. The displays are excellent too. Before driving around the National Seashore it is worth spending some time at the center for a great overview.
