We walked through the house, which was surprisingly larger that it looks, but the true experience was talking to the lady about the house and camp. Her stories gave a true picture of the camp. Especially President Grants experience!
Very nice museum inside a typical cottage house from the area. There's a docent in the house that will explain the history of the cottages so you understand why they were initially built. There's a small fee for admission.
The museum is a cottage is has been converted to a museum and is filled with items from 1880s. I liked seeing how these cottages were made 150 years ago. I parked near the Oak Bluffs Library on School road and walked to the museum.
$3 PP to get in, but your in Martha Vineyard so pay it. It will take about 15 minutes to go through the house/ gift shop. some old knick knacks around this tiny house but very nice people operating it. If you have questions ask...More
We did the 90 minute tour of the Campground that includes a visit to the Cottage Museum. You get the history of how it was a field with tents for a revival type meeting in August, but grew to have the houses replace the tents....More
Surrounded by all these magnificent Victorian cottages, one wonders what they are like inside. This museum provides a first floor peek into the interior room size, as well as how the rooms were originally furnished. Very well done and worth a look.
Great place to visit. Fun and interesting. Designs are detailed and some are amazing. We did go into the museum but there was a fee..so we just poked our heads in. Just walked around the outside and read about the history of why and how...More

While not all shops and restaurants may be open in May, many will be. Campgrounds--with its lovely colorful Victorian houses--is completely open. I'm not sure if the famous Carousel is operative in May, but if it is you and your children will enjoy it. Some of the restaurants and bars along the pier may be open, and sitting in a bench on the avenue skirting the harbor, and observing the waterfont is quite pleasant. Ocean Park is a great place to have a picnic, and there are sure to be many colorful flowers and plantings throughout the park at that time of year. Of course there are other towns nearby, and even if you don't bring a car on island, the excellent and dependable bus system can cheaply and easily take you most everywhere you'd want to go, up island or down. For example, take the bus into Edgartown (a very short ride) and walk around its charming streets, its many private gardens, ice cream (and other) shops, then over to the lighthouse park. finally, take the small ferry over to Chappaquidic Island, which is fun even if you don't have a car. If you do, drive over to the beautiful MyToi Japanese Gardens, open year round and free. There's a lot to do on Martha's Vineyard, but you'll need to drive or take a bus to get to many of the places of interest. Enjoy!
