Every trip to Provincetown includes a visit to PAAM. Their permanent collection is a good way to learn about art on the Cape, and their temporary exhibitions are always good. Spend a little bit of time here.

I come from a smaller city with much better art, (Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wausau, WI) and found the pretentiousness amusing. It didn't help that it was AFTER paying $10.00 admission the staff explained that the Hopper lecture had started and was full, with...More

Visited the PAAM on our February vacation. We loved the juried art display of local artists. The PAAM is a great, quiet retreat from a day of shopping.
