Fun little place
Sep 2021
It takes you about 10 minutes to complete your tour-you can see the back of the house from the front door-LOL. The people working there are very knowledgable though and wiling to share it with others! It's only $3 to tour :)

Just the best

If you check out the campground this is a must stop. The history is most interesting and it is the one place to see the inside of. cottage. The cottage is small and fully furnished. Just great.

Cute little stop
Nov 2019
We went in the off season (November) and no one was there, which was nice because we could drive as slowly as we wanted and take pictures with no interruptions. The cottages are absolutely adorable! I haven't seen anything like it before. If you are in the area definitely check it out.

Cottages, beware of skunks
Sep 2019
We stayed in Oak Bluffs and walked through the cottage area many times. It is very pretty. At night, there are skunks, so beware!

The nice lady at this museum gave us such a good history of the entire "camp" with its revival meetings, tents, and cottages over the years. Such a fascinating history with beautiful cottages all around. A must!

Worth a wander
Jun 2019 • Couples
We wandered over to the cottage museum one afternoon after looking round the gingerbread houses and tabernacle. At just $3 to go in it's worth it. A lady inside told us all about the campground and houses and was on hand to answer questions. You get to see how big the houses are inside and what it's like upstairs.

There is a little gift shop on site too. The staff were freindly and helpful and it was a nice little distraction for half an hour.

A must if you are interested in the history of the campground

Small museum but interesting peek into the history of the Methodist Camp movement of the mid 1800s through modern day. You can visit the second floor via narrow staircase to see living quarters.

Nice small museum
May 2019 • Couples
We had admission to the museum through our island tour we took. They were closed the day we took our tour so we mad a trip back the next to check it out. The man taking tickets was very knowledgeable and nice to talk to about the cottage community. His family has had a cottage for years. Museum is small (it is a former cottage) but well kept with nice exhibits for viewing. Upstairs is small but nicely decorated. Fun visit to step back in time.

Lots of saved junk and the bottom floor, teeny upstairs to see
Sep 2018 • Couples
The ticket seller couldn't answer my first question as he said he was Catholic and it was a question about the antique bible next to him??? If this is Methodist camp history site, that doesn't make a lot of sense. Honestly, I was curious about the size of the places and paid a fee to find that out. I'd pass next time.
