The Museum has just moved to its new quarters on Lower County Road--The Captain Elijah Cobb House, 739 Lower Road, Brewster. The house has been lovingly restored and contains an interesting exhibit about the history of Brewster.

Enjoying a Cape Cod vacation and so good to learn more about the people who influenced the formation of this magnificent slice of America. A well preserved facility with bits and pieces of memorabilia. The $5 offering is well worth it.

This is just a head's up to ignore the reviews that mention the beach. The museum has moved to 739 Lower Rd - it's gorgeous - a renovated circa 1799 sea captain's home - but there is no longer a town beach nearby and no beach access.

This former sea captains home was massively renovated/converted recently into the Brewster Historical Society's headquarters and museum. We were invited to one of the grand opening parties that was just a week or so ago! Make sure you don't go to the old address on Main Street. Definitely worth the visit and exciting to see what can be done when... More

We visited the museum inside this summer and enjoyed the museum. This time we walked the trails. The trails are very easy. There were some stairs near the end of our walk however, nothing strenuous.

Bring a few towels, sunblock, camera, and snacks/lunch! Wish we knew there was a sandbar and the place to party! Watch the tides. At low tide there are tons of people swimming, rafting and floating around on noodles. People were all lined up with tents and just teh place to be! Stunning! and Sunset is fabulous here

As a member of the BHS I may be somewhat biased but as a frequent visitor to Brewster, MA I have witnessed first hand the amazing history that still exists as the framework of this town. Known as the Sea Captains town it is very evident what this town was and the Historical Society does an amazing job of allowing... More

Want to know more about Brewster? This is the place to go. Learn about the sea captains that made Brewster what it is. Lovely things but the hours are limited. After you go in the museum, take the hiking trail behind the museum and walk to the beach. It's about a mile walk.
