Very nice museum inside a typical cottage house from the area. There's a docent in the house that will explain the history of the cottages so you understand why they were initially built. There's a small fee for admission.

The museum is a cottage is has been converted to a museum and is filled with items from 1880s. I liked seeing how these cottages were made 150 years ago. I parked near the Oak Bluffs Library on School road and walked to the museum.

Surrounded by all these magnificent Victorian cottages, one wonders what they are like inside. This museum provides a first floor peek into the interior room size, as well as how the rooms were originally furnished. Very well done and worth a look.

This was the best part of my stay in MV. I learned so much about the local history. I highly recommend this museum. The price is reasonable and the staff is very welcoming. Check it out.

The gingerbread cottages are really interesting. This museum explains the history and how the site developed. It is staffed by locals who are very knowledgeable. We enjoyed our visit.
