Walking Tours at the Cape Ann Museum

The Cape Ann Museum welcomes you to get your arts and culture fix outside this weekend with two walking tours featuring major players in Cape Ann’s artistic, economic and social history. Choose between a leisurely stroll down historic Middle Street on Friday, June 17 or a lively jaunt by Gloucester’s harbor to view the very spots immortalized by the work of artist Fitz Henry Lane on Saturday, June 18.

Guided walking tours begin at 10:00a.m., are held rain or shine and last about 1½ hours; participants should be comfortable being on their feet for that amount of time. $10 members; $20 nonmembers (includes Museum admission). Space is limited; reservations required. Call (978)283-0455 x10 or email info@capeannmuseum.org for details. Tickets can also be purchased online at Eventbrite. Choose one or both tours: Historic Middle Street and Fitz Henry Lane.
