The Arconti American Museum, built and designed by Michael and Susan Arconti, was founded in September 2011 with the mission to bestow upon fellow individuals a new emporium of fine art, historical relic, and cultural artifact. With extensive collections of Colonial and Continental Currency, a Native American peace pipe collection, Charlotte’s Web original illustrations, Thomas Nast political cartoons, Civil War battle flags, and more, the Arconti American Museum welcomes individuals of all ages and backgrounds. Seeking to inspire awe and pride in American Heritage, as well as to diversify the cultural experience for those visiting Cape Cod, the Arconti American Museum exudes a palpable ardor, endearing reception, and personal authenticity rarely matched elsewhere. Welcome are one and all looking to celebrate and explore the life of an extraordinary nation!

It was closed, the sign was removed and upstairs tenant confirmed it wasn't operating any longer. We were very disappointed after reading the great reviews.
