If you want to get a taste of the culture and history of Cape Ann, this is the place to start. The Museum, rightfully upgraded from a local historical society within recent memory, offers galleries of art and local history. It is amazing to learn how many of our great American artists lived and or worked on Cape Ann, from Fitz Henry Lane to Edward Hopper. And of course this artistic tradition has continued, highlighted with exhibitions of contemporary artists, such as this spectacular Cape Ann Artisan show this past Spring. Perhaps my favorite room is the Folly Cove gallery that features work in various mediums by artists who are associated with this Gloucester village. Well worth a visit, and many more return trips.
