I come from a smaller city with much better art, (Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wausau, WI) and found the pretentiousness amusing. It didn't help that it was AFTER paying $10.00 admission the staff explained that the Hopper lecture had started and was full, with...More

The museum itself is excellent. Very modern and up beat A good review of local artists. BUT. The Jazz series they have gives some of the best jazz in the north east. Very small and intimate venue and it's only $15! If your only memoirs...More

Visited the PAAM on our February vacation. We loved the juried art display of local artists. The PAAM is a great, quiet retreat from a day of shopping.

Free admission (donations accepted) on Fridays when other galleries have openings, too. Great fun and so interesting seeing art from Provincetown's famous artists. Special shows and collections can be viewed throughout the year. We're lucky to have this place in our community.

I was very disappointed with the museum. Time would have been better spent in the galleries which are plentiful all along that street. All the art was modern except for one room which was only moderately interesting. Sad that they didn't have more variety!
