PROVINCETOWN – With the beach season winding down on Cape Cod, visitors can turn to the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum for a fall getaway.

The museum is featuring a limited time special exhibition that explores the world’s longest running art colony.

“The Great Provincetown Summer – 1916” immerses visitors into the year 1916, which was a pivotal time in the town’s history for art and culture.

The year brought bohemians, radicals and free thinkers to Provincetown to join writers and artists.

Visitors to the exhibit will experience how the town was a century ago and see the cultural, economic and social forces over that time that have shaped Provincetown into what it is today.

The exhibit features 35 millimeter newsreels, original artwork and replicas of the first theater to house the Provincetown Players.

The special exhibit runs through November 30.

Visitors can also climb the iconic 252-foot monument and experience a 360 degree view of Provincetown.

The Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum is open every day until November 30 from 9 to 5 with the exception of Thanksgiving.
