If you have spent any time at all browsing through this site, you get it: There’s A LOT to do on Cape Cod, more than you can probably accomplish in just one vacation. But we think you will have a great time trying, especially with a visit to the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, a multi-purpose brick building that was built in the 1800s to house a bank. Despite it’s original austere purpose, this unique structure has been repurposed to become the artistic hub of the Cape. The Cultural Center of Cape Cod Located at 307 Old Main Street in South Yarmouth, today, you can browse through art galleries, shops, or take in a performance art show or two!
What Can You Find at the Cultural Center?
Because this former bank houses everything artistic, it may be easier to say what you can’t find at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in Yarmouth, MA! Its motto is “All the Arts for All of Us,” and if it’s artistic, chances are you will find a class, exhibit, or shop here on the topic. Even the culinary arts are celebrated at this institution, with classes being offered in the new Education Wing, which also houses a recording studio, a pottery studio, and other artistic endeavors. Visual arts, humanities, music & movement, even children’s classes are the staple of what makes the center so special.
Thanks to the plethora of Cultural Center of Cape Cod events offered throughout the year, you can expect to find exhibits of pottery created at the center, musical entertainment, including jazz and Christmas shows, and the occasional antique show for your shopping pleasure! Each exhibit, show, or sale has individual admittance fees (the current exhibit, “Impromptu III, The Weaving Network, and Cape Cod Wood Turners” ends December 19th and has free admission!) and the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in Yarmouth, MA also offers memberships.
