I had only an hour or so to spend there but could have stayed much longer. Incredible selection. I was visiting from California and they were able to ship them to me so I didn’t have to bring them on the plane. Highly recommend.
This is a must stop every year that I visit the Cape. If you enjoy history and maps obviously you’ll be interested but it’s just as useful as a place to find fantastic gifts for weddings, anniversaries or any special occasion. Gifting someone an antique or replica map of a special place in their life is unique and truly meaningful. They serve as great decorations and conversation pieces in your home. The staff is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Maps of Antiquity.
A hidden treasure for history buffs, collectors
Although easy to miss because it looks like a home, Maps of Antiquity is a must stop shop for cartographers and cartogrophiles alike. Filled to the brim with maps of New England, the Midwest, and all around the world this store contains the map of your dreams.
When you visit, you will find yourself in a very unique establishment. It’s fun to wander through and explore on your own or with assistance. The small-looking structure belies the really incredible selection of maps, many of them unique and one of a kind, within. You never feel under pressure to buy and you have unbiased advice from the staff. Prices are reasonable and you cannot leave without feeling better informed. The staff are all smart, respectful and helpful, making your visit all the more enjoyable. What an experience!
