Be sure to visit this great museum after touring the nearby Highland Lighthouse and you'll get $2.00 off the admission. Great former inn that now serves as a museum for the history of the founding of what used to be called "Dangerfield".

We were headed to the Lighthouse & came upon the museum, you literally have to pass it to get to the lighthouse! As luck would have it they were not charging admission that day & were serving refreshments. We enjoyed the tour, there is a...More

In my frequent visits to the Highland Light, I had overlooked the Truro Historial Museum housed in a building next to the parking lot. It provides a full view of the history of Truro as well and the Outer Cape. Most interesting is the story...More
