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.

Very friendly Rangers - excellent, informative Visitor's Center. I told my kids to put away their phones and knock it off with the PokemonGo. The Rangers overheard and let the kids and me know that all the PokeStops are near educational signs and that it was okay to play Pokemon just stop and read the signs. So we played Pokemon... More

A great introduction to the Cape Cod natural and human history. The museum is just right, plenty of actual artifacts, dating from the time when Native Americans lived on the Cape, to the arrival of Europeans, and the work lives of early Americans who lived here, especially fishing and whaling. The movies were entertaining--we watched the one on the natural... More

This National Parks facility is much like the one up in Provincetown but both are worth a visit. The small museum is interesting and movies are shown throughout the day.

This is a beautiful facility in a gorgeous setting. The pond behind the VC is lovely and there are so many trails you can hop on right from the visitor's center. The interpretive information available in the V.C. is awesome, complete with a neat little museum! There was even a photo display in the classroom area. The small Eastern National... More
