Stopped here on the ghost tour and after hearing about the cup and boat replica we had to go in. It’s a nice little stop.

Be sure to stop in an see the replica of the famous sailing schooner. Amazing hand crafted skills.. Well worth the effort. A great resource too.

You should go to public libraries regardless. But the Provincetown Public Library is a real gem. The building is incredible and you can't beat the view from the reading nooks upstairs.

I believe it is a public free library. I have never paid for admission. I think there is a donation box. I attended a May poetry reading with refreshments gratis. They also supply free or reduced museum admission.
