Nantucket has a thriving artistic culture that visitors are encouraged to explore. You’ll find that galleries are dotted along almost every street throughout Town. Often, there are theatre productions in local and outdoor venues throughout the summer. We also have two movie theatres to satisfy film lovers. During the summer, Friday evenings are popular for art openings at galleries. They feature the best local artists and wine and cheese is served to top it off.
