The Museum is conducting a community survey to help formulate a meaningful strategic plan to guide us in the coming years. Please take a moment to answer 10 simple questions and help us in our goal to serve our community well.

What is it about this narrow land that has for over 350 years attracted and nurtured so many creative and adventurous people? The Museum collection reveals many important clues: reminders of the social, cultural and economic milestones of Wellfleet’s diverse and fascinating history. The eclectic assemblage of artifacts in the permanent exhibits represents the unique character of Wellfleet’s history of whaling, fishing, oystering, farming, shipping (and wrecking), surf lifesaving, salt making, and the worldwide voyages of its residents.


The Museum is closed to the public until the Spring of 2015

Staff and volunteers continue to work through the winter to improve collections and bring you great programing for 2015.

See you next year!
