About Us

Cape May MAC (Museums+Arts+Culture) is a multi-faceted non-profit organization, promoting the restoration, interpretation and cultural enrichment of greater Cape May for its residents and visitors. Through its sponsorship of cultural and heritage tourism, Cape May MAC has helped transform Cape May from a “summer only” beach resort to the country’s leading Victorian theme destination. Your donation to any of Cape May MAC’s initiatives helps us carry out these missions, ensuring a vital and robust community.
