  • Cape Cod Maritime Museum
    Nestled beside the Hyannis waterfront, Cape Cod Maritime Museum preserves five centuries of the region's seafaring history. Its primary exhibit, Making Waves: Maritime Ventures on Cape Cod, comprises 400 years of artifacts, ranging from a mariner's chart to fishing tools used by the Wampanoag people. In addition to authentic pieces of history, the museum helpfully recreates other aspects of the past with model ships and a 28-foot boat that kids can climb on. Besides its main exhibit, Cape Cod Maritime Museum hosts rotating exhibits on subjects such as how rum-runners bypassed Prohibition and which vessels whales like to use as back-scratchers. The museum also welcomes adults and youngsters alike to year-round, hands-on events and programs that focus on maritime skills such as building a traditional wooden rowing skiff.

  • Helen H Fleet
    In the depths of Cape Cod swim delicacies such as sea-bass and fluke. With backgrounds in both commercial and recreational fishing, the captains of Helen H Fleet lead anglers on trips for these catches, motoring to fishing grounds such as Nantucket Sound. The seven-boat fleet, which ranges from the 30-foot Sea Hawk to the 100-foot Helen H, lets the captains accommodate small charters of one to five anglers as well as party cruises. Crews rent out rods and reels, as well as sell refreshments in between anglers' bouts with feisty bass or boots stuck to the ocean floor. Targeted species change with the season, and Helen H Fleet's captains also charter whale- and seal-watching excursions whenever the creatures migrate along Cape Cod.

  • JFK Hyannis Museum Foundation
    John F. Kennedy is nothing short of an American legend?an icon of both hope and tragedy. The residents of Cape Cod, however, see him a little differently. "He was our 35th President and our neighbor," they say, and it's this neighborly, human side of the man that takes center stage at the JFK Hyannis Museum. The Museum offers a multimedia experience that recreates Kennedy's life from 1934 to 1963. Exhibits contain film, photographs, and decorative displays; there's even a video about Cape life narrated by Walter Cronkite. Each year, the Museum supplements its standing collection with a special exhibit focusing on one aspect of JFK's life, be it his political accomplishments or his relationship with his brother.
