Announcing 2022 Event Series, “The Road to Revolution on Cape Cod”

We are very excited to announce our 2022 event series, “The Road to Revolution on Cape Cod.” The series will explore the cultural and political history of the Revolutionary era on Cape Cod (c. 1760s-1770s). It will feature a special webinar presentation by historian Mary Beth Norton, “Cape Cod and the Tea Party Crisis of 1773,” which will discuss the sinking of the ship William in December 1773. The museum will also host an archaeology dig in search of Revolutionary-era artifacts, as well as a muster demonstration by the Tenth Massachusetts Regiment. And, the museum will unveil its 2022 special exhibit, “The Road to Revolution on Cape Cod” on June 18. It will be on display until the close of the season on October 15.

For a limited time, we are offering 1-year trial memberships to anyone who purchases a ticket to any event in the series (new members only). Members receive free access to Nye Museum events, tours, and exhibits, as well as discounted prices at the gift shop.
