  • We passed by so many times and the only reason that I decided to stop was to find out about the osprey nest at the back of the marsh. What a wonderful surprise to see the great trail at the back! The ...  more »
  • Ideal for kids age 5 and over who can eagerly keep up on the boardwalk “adventure walk” to the beach from the main entrance. Plus great “natural history” displays in the main entrance area. Absolutely...  more »

  • Enjoyable little natural history museum based around the ecosystem on the cape. The bird feeders were very active outside the window with 6 different birds, red and gray squirrels, and chipmunks all eating. The osprey camera with chicks was also excellent. We went too early in the season so only a few butterflies to visit with. The tick signs are no joke check yourself and your children when you leave. I pulled one off my 2 year olds pants.
  • Great museum, beach, tidal flats, beach grass, low tide smells, natural environment, walks, and staff. Reminder of what the cape was before it was discovered. You'll return in time - or be introduced - to simpler pleasures of old cape cod here. Worth it.
  • Loved the nature walk down to the beach. It was a relaxing stroll through the marsh and the woods to get to a nice, sparsely populated beach. Wonderful place for kids, but no restrooms that are close to the beach.
  • Wonder paths to traverse here
  • Nice museum, very nice hiking trail
