Enjoyable museum, not very large so can easily be seen with limited time. Short hours in the off season so plan to get there early in the day.

Rainy, chilly April day in Plymouth. After visiting Plymouth Plantation, Hampton Inn Shuttle picked us up and drove us to downtown Plymouth. We visited this museum it was worth it. Authentic exhibits and great informative video. Too cold to do shopping or visit the rock. . . this was well worth it.

This is the place to learn more about The Pilgrims and dispel some of those myths. informed docents, Just the right size. Loved to see the huge painting being restored. Don't miss the movie in the basement.

We were a little disenchanted with Plymouth Rock itself, but this museum salvaged our trip to Plymouth by educating us about the history there. They were removing a very large painting from the mail hall when we arrived, which was interesting to watch. Downstairs, the historical artifacts and information are well worth a visit.

A delightful, down-to-earth small museum about the Plymouth landing and colony. Interesting artefacts and interpretive displays, together with paintings of the period. I loved being able to touch part of the 'actual' rock the pilgrims landed on! Allow up to one hour. Has restrooms and gift shop.

Loved the Museum - We went on a Sunday afternoon and while the weather was cold and rainy (turning into snow just after our visit) the Pilgrim Hall Museum held our attention the entire time we were there. The exhibits, the stories, the short film... all humbled us as we went back in time and learned of the first Pilgrims... More

Full of early american Plymouth belongings. A brief historical film presentation. For all decendants of Mayflower passengers, it is a "must see".

What a great place this is! There are some artifacts that just amaze me that they have survived so long. You can't take pictures indoors but it make sense, considering what they're trying to protect and preserve there. There is a fun museum scavenger hunt for the kids, there are 2 or 3 different versions for different age ranges, so... More
