This "boutique" museum is a gem. Opened in the last year, after a complete renovation, lovingly restored, and staffed completely by volunteers. Take advantage of the historical society's tours and book signings by Sally Cabot Gunning.

The Museum has just moved to its new quarters on Lower County Road--The Captain Elijah Cobb House, 739 Lower Road, Brewster. The house has been lovingly restored and contains an interesting exhibit about the history of Brewster.

Enjoying a Cape Cod vacation and so good to learn more about the people who influenced the formation of this magnificent slice of America. A well preserved facility with bits and pieces of memorabilia. The $5 offering is well worth it.

We visited the museum inside this summer and enjoyed the museum. This time we walked the trails. The trails are very easy. There were some stairs near the end of our walk however, nothing strenuous.

Bring a few towels, sunblock, camera, and snacks/lunch! Wish we knew there was a sandbar and the place to party! Watch the tides. At low tide there are tons of people swimming, rafting and floating around on noodles. People were all lined up with tents...More
