“Lovely store”

My husband and I rushed here after our whale watcher cruise hoping to find something nice to remember our anniversary weekend. We arrived about 30 minutes before the shop closed. I expected to have a quick browse then hurried out the door. That did not happen. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. We weren’t sure what exactly we wanted, so they pointed us to the direction of different maps and we began looking. They have a wonderful inventory, so many interesting maps to look at. We quickly got lost in the maps and could have stayed there for hours!! Next time we visit Chatham we will have to allow more time at Maps of Antiquity. It truly is a must see if you are in the area. The owners are knowledgeable and will help you find exactly what you are looking for.

“Beautiful Maps and Very Knowledgeable Staff”

This is a wonderful map store. They have maps from all over the place and everything is very organized and easy to look through. If you’re looking for something specific they will help you find it and show you some specialty things that aren’t out. They have a wide range of original maps and reproductions and variable price points. If you need something shipped, framed or rolled to take back while traveling it isn’t a problem. I look forward to stopping in the next time I’m in the area.

“Wonderful place”

We have visited Maps of Antiquity several times over the years. We have purchased maps there as well as having some restorations, including cleaning and a fairly complex restoration which involved restoring a missing piece that someone had cut out of an 1855 map of our hometown. We have also had framing done there. All dealings with Danielle and Robert have been friendly, courteous and professional. We always stop in when we are on the Cape.

“Professional online service”

I found maps of Antiquity online. Their range of maps and comparative maps is astonishing. Service, shipping and correspondence was professional. I can highly recommend this to map-freaks like me but also to others with more general interests in history, geology and geography. It’s a treasure!

“Excellent and unique”

My husband’s job brings us to different countries every 2-4 years, and each country becomes part of our family’s memories and journey. We were desperately looking for an antique map of El Salvador, but could not find a verifiably genuine map anywhere, although there are plenty of fakes floating around. Were delighted to find a beautiful map via Maps of Antiquity website, and had it professionally framed with them. Not cheap, but absolutely worth it. Now, two years later, I have just purchased another map, and communication was easy, with timely and thorough replies for emails. A very reliable, unique and most excellent place. Can’t wait to visit in person one day, and will keep on making online purchases from them meanwhile. Highly recommend.

“Absolutely fantastic! ”

The staff was very friendly and welcoming–even told me as a first time visitor what was where. They asked me what I was interested in and helped me find something. I will make it a point to come back here on any future visits to Chatham, that is, if I don’t return on this trip!

“Beautiful Maps/Great Service”

Recently I read about Maps of Antiquity. Being of a curious nature, I went to their website and found the most beautiful maps dating back centuries. My wife and I take frequent trips to Jamaica and I found the most beautiful map of Jamaica, circa 1821. Upon its safe arrival in short time I took it to have framed and the framing was more than the map! The service was also fantastic. Buying a map from Maps of Antiquity was a great experience and I will do it again. Mark Bryant, Paducah, Kentucky

“Hidden Gem”

We found this place on trip advisor and were excited to check it out. We showed up just after they closed but the owners were so friendly they invited us in anyways to poke around, even after we told them we were “just looking”. The place was packed full of so many original maps from so many places from all years. I felt like a kid looking through them all. We ended up almost buying several but settled on a very cool repro map of cape cod. Well worth the trip we made out of our way and they were so knowledgeable and patient with all our questions!!
