This gives PMPM a unique opportunity to promote our mission of TRUTH, which reflects the institution and community’s commitment to Tolerance | Respect | Unity | Trust | Her-His-Their story.

The exhibit enshrines the stories of the LGBTQ+ community of Provincetown over the past century through documented first-hand accounts and a short documentary video series entitled “Remnants: An Excavation of Provincetown” chronicling the lives of those who lived and died in the 20th century in Ptown.

Education and exhibits such as this keeps lessons-learned over the ages fresh in our minds, preventing complacency. The LGBTQ+ community is ingrained not only in Provincetown’s history, but in its day-to-day life. One could go as far to say that most towns and cities have lost the TRUTH that is found so readily here.

Plan Your Visit

The Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum is closed for the season and will re-open on April 1, 2023. We invite you to plan your visit now and look forward to sharing this important part of our past with you. Tickets may be purchased in advance here.
