Small and manageable in an hour, this modern looking building houses two main exhibition spaces. We enjoyed the works on show and the shop had books and cards to buy.

If you like art, don’t miss this place. They have truly creative exhibits, bot permanent and short term. It is better than any gallery you will visit. Don’t miss the small paintings show which features several hundreds local artists.

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.

A gallery with changing exhibitions and with donated art giving a good cross section of the work done on the Cape or by Cape artists elsewhere. Worth a visit and the $10 entry fee.
