Page 98 of 131 97 e Cape Cod Museum Trail An Open Door to Discover Local Treasures By Jessica Bettencourt JFK Museum, Hyannis In 2014, Glenn Ritt, President of Ritt Commu- nications, came to a realization -- the Cape has so many museums across its historic towns, but there wasn't one central repository where visi- tors could learn more about the wide variety of attractions the region has to offer. As a result, the Cape Cod Museum Trail was born, an online guide where people can view Cape Cod's museums at-a-glance to align with their interests. What started as a collection of 12 museums when the project first started, the Cape Cod Museum Trail now features informa- tion on more than 75 museums and attractions across the Cape. The online resource has descriptions and con- tact information for each museum and a built-in Google Map that allows visitors to get directions from any starting point. It also features photo galleries, videos, feature stories and virtual tours for those who can't make it to the attractions in person. The Cape Cod Museum Trail is one of a kind, in the sense that it's a one-stop location to plan your vacation or just stay current every month with Cape Cod happenings. Today, the Cape Cod Museum Trail is sponsored by First Citizens' Federal Credit Union, as a fur- ther testament to the organization's support of local community efforts. Peter Muise, the new- ly retired CEO of First Citizens' Federal Credit Union, is deeply passionate about the project; and existing members of the credit union can get a discount at some of the museums and their gift shops upon confirmation of member- ship. "The Cape Cod Museum Trail is a resource for people to find areas of interest. If you're into art, you can view the options of local art mu- seums. Each art museum on the Cape features different members and artists; and you can view that in advance too," explained Mary Taylor, Program Manager of the Cape Cod Museum Trail. "For those into culinary experiences, there are attractions on the Cape where you can cook a recipe with a chef, make homemade bread or bake pies in the fall and at Christmas time." Taylor also explained how the Cape Cod Muse- um Trail also has information pertaining to con- certs featuring different types of music through- out the year, ranging from jazz to opera and everything in between.
