  • Learned a lot about history. Took the elevator down to the other side of the museum. It's a lovely town to hang out. Had lobster bisque and clam chowder

  • Almost empty on an April Sunday so it made for a low pressure visit- no one crowding the exhibits and no one hurrying behind me up the stairs/ramps of the monument. Very nicely curated museum and great view of the Cape from the top of the monument. Nice gift shop also. Well worth the admission.
  • A must! Where American democracy was born!
