Small museum, worth the trip. No admission fee (donation box). Local docent brought the museum to life. Besides the usual artifacts and maps, an authentic winter lodge is recreated out back. Set aside about an hour.

The Wampanoag museum in Mashpee is a treasure, indeed. The history of the people that saved the Pilgrims is one we should all know.

This site might not look like much from the road, but it is full of Mashpee history! My husband and I decided to take an official tour of the site, and our guide was fantastic. She, herself, has Mashpee Wampanoag heritage and was very well...More
