Heritage Museum and Gardens

While visiting Cape Cod, you'll want to visit the area's largest attraction, the Heritage Museums & Gardens.   Located on 100 acres of award-winning gardens with spectacular blooms, you'd be surprised to find even the winter the views are spectacular.  Also featured are the J. K. Lilly III Automobile Collection, antique bicycles,  filling station memorabilia, the Cape Cod Baseball League Exhibit and Hall of Fame and the Military Miniature Collection. The Art Museum is home to an antique 1906–1912 working Loof carousel and folk art that celebrates the American spirit.
