Museum of Natural History
Cape Cod MA Attrations

We stopped to visit the Museum of Natural History, but it was July 4th and it was closed.

The museum is especially appropriate for children. There is a whale exhibit, which includes the skeleton of a minke whale washed ashore at a Chatham beach in 1978. A bird room, mineral exhibit, turtle tank, and weather station are all stops in this fun place.

This first picture is a view of the museum's sign from the street.

There is also a nice gift shop.

Here is a picture of a dinasour bone outside the museum.

There is a nice trail adjacent to the Museum, it is called The John Wing Trail. The trail leads you through marsh and seashore vegetation to a lovely beach. We were also curious why so many cars were parked at the museum, we followed some people and saw that there is trail to a beach in back of the museum also. But it is about a half mile hike.

When we left to go find something to drink we found Kate's Fried Seafood Roadside restaurant. It looks like popular spot and you can get ice cream too. We followed Paines Creek Road and ran into a permit only beach which may be the Brewster Town Beach.
