We went here for a play; The theater is small and intimate. The exhibit rooms are large and airy. This is a really great venue for art.

This museum is awesome. Exhibitions are replaced on a regular basis. Current exhibitions include Vernon Smith-Cape Cod Artist & Artisan, Varing Visions from Six Master Photographers and Painting with Wax (Encaustic painting). Members get free admission to all exhibitions. Definitely worth a visit.
