Looking for things to do on an out of season day in Provincetown we read that the library has a half-scale model of the sailing ship that won the Lipton Cup way back when. Seems the buiding was originally a museum and when they decided to have a model of this ship (which is huge - they had to knock... 更多
It is always gratifying to see libraries are still alive and this one is a real gem-offering more than one would expect.The ship on the top floor is a nice complement to the views from the windows.A nice place to visit.
We stopped in here to take a break from Commercial Street and was pleasantly surprised. The childrens area was clean and comfortable. There were big padded blocks for climbing. My 10 month old had a blast crawling around and climbing. If you have a little who is getting antsy from the stroller, this will give them a nice break.
Beautiful inside and out. Well organized. Views from the upper windows are very rewarding. Lots of local art on the walls.

Whenever we go on vacation we stop in at libraries as my wife loves them. The old building looks nice from the outside and once you go inside the boat that was built inside the library will blow your mind. I have never seen that before. Don't forget to go to the top floor and look out onto Commercial St.... 更多
