During the Summer months the 3 Sisters Lighthouses in Eastham have tours. On Sundays and Tuesdays you can learn some interesting facts and history about these lighthouses. At 5pm and for 1 hour you can tour the lighthouses and stroll through the Eastham trails learning about the importance of a lighthouse. The start of the tour is at the Nauset beach parking lot just 1/4 mile from the lighthouses. You will then have a guided walking tour to the lighthouses as well as a chance to see the inside of them. This is a great activity to do with the family at the end of a long day at the beach.
Today at the Eastham Schoolhouse Museum the Eastham Painters Guild will be presenting local artwork. The Schoolhouse Museum is located just 1/2 mile from the Town Crier Motel and is a great place to enjoy. You can even go inside of the Schoolhouse and see how the school was setup back in the day. They have old school desks and other historic items on display. The Eastham Painters Guild has been presenting at the Schoolhouse for more than 24 years. If you are a local painter or a visiting painter and would like to paint with the Eastham Painters guild, you can join them every Tuesday from May to October weather permitting. They choose different scenic spots each day on the lower Cape. For more information visit their website here.
