This compendium of museums and historic spots has something for everyone. You can visit the Whaling Museum to learn about the past (when New Englanders' relationship to these gentle giants was a bit more antagonistic than whale watching trips off Wellfleet). For a quieter time, check out the Research Library or take a guided outdoor walking tour.
