  • This is a hidden gem of Cape Cod folk art history, a beautiful tribute to the Cahoon's artistry, and a dynamic platform for high quality contemporary artists' revolving exhibitions.

  • You'll realize when you see them that you have seen drawings and paintings by the Cahoons before or at least ones that were inspired by them. The mermaids in the kitchen with Julia Child as a mermaid is definitely a must-see. Reading about their seashell art it might sound kind of hokey but they are amazing, beautiful and so intricate. Prepare to be fascinated,and you may very well want to bring home a unique souvenir from their gift shop.
  • Quaint little museum. We went to see the Sailors Valentine exhibit, make sure to catch it before it ends in early September. They are charming.
