It is wonderful to see it in person, including being up close and personal with the huge painting of the landing of the pilgrims that is currently being restored. They have many artifacts, including William Bradford's chair. The staff is so friendly, and... More

Pilgrim Hall is the oldest museum in the country. Currently, restorers are on site working on the Henry Sargent painting, The Landing of the Pilgrims.

Great artifacts, art, documents... Watch the movie! Learned quite a bit. Give yourself 1-2 hours. Convenient parking in the back. Small entry fee

The Pilgrim Hall Museum is well worth the $7.00 price of admission. Their 15 minute video really instills an appreciation for the challenges of the unknown and the perseverance of the Mayflower passengers. You can actually touch a good size piece of Plymouth Rock at the Museum.

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.

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.
