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

The Pilgrim Hall Museum is " the oldest continuously operating public museum in the country and America’s museum of Pilgrim possessions". A small museum, where you can find a lot out about the lives of the Pilgrims ... very interesting! You can see the whole thing in less than an hour, but don't miss the movie downstairs ... very well... More

The museum has a nice collection of art and artifacts. Children can get an age-appropriate "hunting" list at the main desk, and then look for items on the list as they go through the museum. Our grandsons (ages 6 and 8) really got into the hunt.

Great to see pilgrims history and artifacts. The video was well done and informative. It was raining the day we were there. Drove to the monument where Plymouth rock is. it is not accessible. You can touch a piece that is in the museum. (the rock has a long history that is interesting)
