Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts

No trip to Cape May is complete without a stop at the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts (MAC). Formed in 1970 to save the 1879 Emlen Physick Estate from the wrecking ball, MAC now operates the 18-room restored mansion as Cape May's only Victorian house museum. MAC also restored and operates the 1859 Cape May Lighthouse where visitors can climb the 199 steps to the top for a breathtaking view of the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean.

Year-round, MAC offers a full schedule of tours and events, including trolley, boat, walking, and ghost tours, food and wine events, summertime family activities, Spring Festival in April and May, the Cape May Music Festival in May and June, Victorian Week in early October, Halloween activities in late October and six weeks of Christmas tours and events. Let us help you plan the perfect visit to Cape May!
