Phase One of the museum’s Mayflower 400 exhibit, Before They Were Here, chronicles the life of the Pilgrims from 1606 before their departure for the New World in 1620. Learn in-depth about the circumstances which made them leave England for Holland, and why they finally decided they must set sail for the New World.
“It’s not the history you were taught in your textbooks,” says our Front Desk Manager Sindi Harvey.
Thanks to a grant from Cape and Islands United Way, the museum purchased brand new plantings for our front gardens! Under the supervision of our front desk manager and organizer extraodinaire Sindi Harvey, volunteers (left to right: Ed Cook, Bob Davalos and Stephen Ebersold — along with Jolee, the Doggie) came and helped us plant. Thank you to our volunteers and to Cape and Islands United Way!

On Sunday, March 24 Don Wilding spoke to a sold out room! Noted historian, author and filmmaker Don Wilding gave his presentation of some of the greatest shipwrecks and rescues of Cape Cod’s outer beaches. His talk narrowws in on the earliest days of the U.S. Lifesaving Service (1872) to the early years of the U.S. Coast Guard in the first half of the 20th century, focusing on notorious shipwrecks including the Italian bark Castagna (1914), the Canadian schooner Montclair (1927), and the British ship Jason (1893), in which 25 men perished.
We have invited Don back for an encore performance in the Fall. Be sure to check back on our Events Calendar to see when he will return!
