 Cape Cod Museum of Art

The Cape Cod Museum of Art's vision is to be central to the artistic and cultural life of the region. Our goal is to epitomize excellence in all of our activities and programs and to make them available to everyone.

The museum's collections and exhibitions also include works drawn from a broader context, providing a more comprehensive understanding of our regional artistic heritage.

Bass River Lighthouse

Bass River Light was among the last of 30 lighthouses erected beginning in 1797 on Cape Cod and the islands. Built in 1855 atop a large keeper's house, it had a range of 12 miles and flashed a white light every 6 seconds. The lighthouse replaced a lantern hung in the attic window of a private residence. It provided safe passage for an active fishing and packet fleet for 60 years. The light was shut down in 1880, re-activated in 1881 and continued until 1914.

The Cape Playhouse

The Cape Playhouse is America's oldest professional summer theater. Founder Raymond Moore moved an abandoned Unitarian meetinghouse to land of Old King's Highway he had acquired in the 1920s. The theater opened in 1927 with a play starring Basil Rathbone. Henry Fonda and Bette Davis, a former playhouse usher, made their acting debuts here.

Welcome to the Eventide Theatre Company!  Eventide produces three full stage productions per season, along with two concerts or performances by “Voices of Cape Cod” and sponsors both songwriting and playwriting competitions. The songwriting contest features a performance and the playwriting contest features two staged readings.

Salt Works

Salt was vital to the Cape's large fishing fleet and maritime trade. Most Cape salt was obtained by importation and boiling of seawater using prodigious amounts of scarce wood. By 1832, 881 salt works produced some 250,000 bushels of salt annually. With the discovery of salt in mines in New York, and the advent of the railroad, the evaporative process was far too expensive, and the business declined. The last salt vats were dismantled in the 1890s.

Scargo Tower

Scargo Tower began as a tourist observatory in 1874. Made of wood, it was destroyed in a gale two years later. Rebuilt again of wood, it burned in 1900. the present cobblestone tower opened in 1901. The 30 foot high tower is located atop the highest hill in the mid-Cape. Indian legends tell of the making of both Scargo Hill and Scargo Lake. Views may be seen of the entire lower cape to Provincetown, and as far west as Plymouth.  

“Sea Captain’s Church” South Dennis Congregational Church

Built in 1835 at a cost of $3,700 on the site of the 1795 Bass River Meeting House, this hill-top church contains the nation's oldest working organ, a Sandwich glass chandelier, box pews and tablets listing 106 sea captains who were church members.

Scargo Pottery

Scargo Pottery was opened in the summer of 1952. The gallery and studio that stand today represent a kind of work in progress that has evolved and changed over the years to accommodate the innovations and ideas that are the products of perseverance. A strong background in the visual arts with an emphasis on sculpture eventually led to the field of ceramics. The close integration of practical knowledge of an art and a prosperous living environment in which to produce it, became the motivational factors behind the founding of Scargo Pottery.
