A Message from Cape May MAC (Museums + Arts + Culture) to our members, friends, and community​:

In the abundance of caution, exceeding compliance with state mandates, Cape May MAC has cancelled or postponed all public programming through April 30. And we must cancel tours of the Cape May Lighthouse and the World War II Lookout Tower through April 30. Cape May MAC will regularly send alerts and update our website for additional schedule changes (www.capemaymac.org).

Now, more than ever, we need support from our community to help keep us going. One of the ways you can support us is by making a donation to our General Operations Fund. If your are able to do so, you can click to donate below.

In the interim stay well. We look forward to seeing you back in Cape May once the spread of COVID-19 has been managed.

NEW HOUSE TOUR THEME

This Old House: Preservation of the Physick Estate

Each year, our tour of the Physick House Museum highlights a particular aspect of Victorian life and culture.  This year marks Cape May MAC’s 50th Anniversary, and our tour focuses on the Physick House itself. It is fitting, since this is where Cape May MAC began, in its efforts to save the house from the wrecking ball. You will learn of the mansion’s years as a grand residence for the Physick family, to its tragic decline and near demolition and, finally, to its rise as a fully-restored historic landmark. Come join us to learn the compelling story of its life.
