The Museum is famous for its Dexter rhododendrons that bloom late May into early June. The beautifully landscaped grounds are a naturalized woodland park on the edge of upper Shawme Pond. A Shaker round barn houses the J. K. Lilly III Antique Automobile Collection with its stunning display of antique automobiles. The American History Museum exhibits military miniatures, antique toys, Native American artifacts and the Cape Cod Baseball League Hall of Fame. An operating hand-carved carousel and many of America’s most distinguished artists’ works are on exhibit in the Art Museum. The Art Museum is also the home of our 2007 Featured Exhibit: A Short Life and Merry: Pirates of New England.
