The Aquinnah Cultural Center is a museum of Wampanoag history and culture, located in the Edwin Devries Vanderhoop Homestead near the Gay Head cliffs.

Other exhibits include Wampanoag whaling, the Gay Head Lighthouse, and turn of the century Wampanoag owned and operated inns and restaurants.
5:00 PM Reading and Discussion Group: "Our Story: 400 Years of Wampanoag History" There are still spaces available to join this group, which will be in 3 sessions on August 9, August 23, and September 6. We will look at the 17th century history in the "Our Story" exhibit, and analyze and compare it to the 20th century incident of the "Mashpee 9". The goal is to see history as a continuum and not as a series of unrelated events.
