The visitor's center is very nice. The park service personnel were friendly, informative and helpful. They have an excellent gift shop. We got lots of tips on other places to visit on Cape Cod. Hiking around the salt pond was an extra bonus.

Very nice facility with knowledgeable guides. The museum, theater and amphitheater were awesome. We only allowed an hour for this stop but wished we had allowed more but it was getting close to closing time.
