Comments about Smart Destinations Cape Cod Maritime Museum:
The cape seems to be chock full of museums dedicated to exploring maritime history. Makes sense since that's their schtick and they aren't letting that go easily. This Museum is small but good quality. It's worth a stop to see the replica Catboat on property if you're in the area.
