TripWhat's travel guide to Truro; our list of the best things to see, including Truro Historical Museum and Highland Light, Long Nook Road and Atlantic Spice Co..
  • Truro Historical Museum and Highland Light

    Light House Road
    Admission $4 for one, $6 for both, under 12 free (must be 51 inches (1.3 m) tall to climb the lighthouse). The oldest lighthouse on Cape Cod, originally built in 1797, rebuilt in 1857, and one of the most powerful lights on the East Coast, with a beam reaching 23 miles offshore. Perched on one of the highest cliffs (120 ft (40 m)) on the Cape, it was moved back from the edge of the cliff in 1996. The museum, built in 1907 as an inn for tourists, is interesting in itself, but also has 17th century firearms, shipwreck mementos, early fishing and whaling gear, a pirate’s chest and much more.
