    Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM)

    Since 1914, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) has welcomed, nurtured and inspired artists from all over the world– not just to create, but also to connect with the town and its people. Only in Provincetown could this unique relationship between artists and community members become the defining experience of this fabled, outermost point of Cape Cod.

    There’s a place in the town’s East End that could give Alice and her Wonderland a run for their money. From the outside, the Mary Heaton Vorse House looks like any other venerable Cape Cod abode. But step through the door and you’re immersed in a magical world of beauty, warmth, and charm that is intoxicating.
