MAC Physick Estate Tours
Weekly on Wednesdays from Now-Aug 28, 2019 | All Day Event - Departs at 8:45am
Take a curated, historic tour though Cape May -- visit the Physick Estate, Carroll Gallery Exhibit, and enjoy a catered box lunch on Washington Street Mall -- before returning to the ferry. Operated by Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts.
Board our trolley at the Cape May Ferry Terminal. As you travel into Cape May, our knowledgeable guide presents architectural, historical, and entertaining information about the nation's oldest seashore resort. Afterwards, enjoy a tour of the 1879 Emlen Physick Estate House Museum, Cape May's only Victorian house museum, with 15 rooms authentically restored to their original grandeur and changing seasonal exhibits. After your tour, visit the Carroll Gallery Exhibit, "Capturing Cape May's Architecture: The Making of a National Historic Landmark." Then, pick up your box lunch prepared by the Carriage House Cafe and Tearoom, board our trolley and arrive in downtown Cape May to spend some time walking the beautiful Victorian streets, shopping on the Washington Street Mall, walking along the promenade with a view of the beach and choosing your favorite spot for a catered box lunch. Take our trolley back to the Cape May Ferry Terminal, as your tour concludes with your return crossing to Lewes.
