Cape Cod Museum Trail (“CCMT”) is a 501(c)3, public non-profit organization that is both a physical journey, and digital initiative that provides a history-related prism into Cape Cod Life and Culture. Our mission is to support and promote the image, wellbeing and financial health of Cape Cod Museums, Cultural Centers and Art Exhibitions by creating opportunities for networking, collaboration and educational programs. In support of these, we seeks to enrich the community by providing opportunities for discovery and learning to residents and visitors.
We began in October 2015 and what started modestly as a series of meetings with a few museums has evolved into a consortium of over 75 Cape-wide institutions whose directors and staff members meet regularly and communicate digitally to develop comprehensive monthly calendars of events, story ideas and more.
The vision of the Cape Cod Museum Trail seeks to strengthen and promote the important role that museums play. To educate and visibly market to residents, visitors and tourists alike, that museums are a valuable part of the wider cultural and heritage sector. They are key to both the visitor market and the cultural provision for local communities across Massachusetts providing stimulation, education and fun.
