  • Good exhibits of the USCG's many missions, including photos and artifacts, all of which is part of Cape Cod's history.

  • We had an awesome time exploring the proud heritage of the Cape. Volunteers were super friendly and knowledgeable. We had the privilege of speaking with a 30 year veteran of the USCG who shared a lot of great historic information. If you are in the area or not far, its worth stopping by.
  • Great museum in a truly beautiful historic town and building. The guides are very knowledgeable and spend as much time as you need to get the absolutely best experience. Don't forget to visit the Barnstable Blacksmith shop in the buildings historic carriage house.
