Just when you think you have seen and heard everything there is to know about early American history, you come across a gem like this museum and see things you haven't seen anywhere else. The exhibits are not overwhelming, not too much reading on each display. You come away with a sense of awe over what the Pilgrims endured. A... More

This is a very interesting place to spend an hour. The historic memorabilia, artwork and movie presentation are of high quality and displayed in a nice air conditioned building. Well worth the price of admission.

Touch a piece of Plymouth Rock, original possessions of the Pilgrims that came over on the Mayflower. Enough said. You can't experience this anywhere else on Earth. William Bradford's chair. The White's baby cradle. There are only a handful of items left from this piece of our History and they are here and available for you to see, not hidden... More

Many artifacts to see that came over on the Mayflower but you can not take any pictures inside the museum!

I enjoyed this museum. We were also lucky enough to go on 'Treasure Hunt' day so the kids were not bored. My husband and I got to look around and really enjoy the museum and the kids were learning without realizing it.

I enjoyed my recent visit to Pilgrim Hall Musuem. Make sure to watch the short film about the Pilgrims and look through all the artifacts. One disappointment was that some items were missing from their displays. I believe they were being preserved/restored. Thought I would go in for a quick visit, ended up staying longer than I originally planned. Make... More

We timed our visit so we were here at the hottest part of the afternoon. There was a lot to see so we took our time. It was very interesting, probably not for young kids though. The entrance fee was nominal.

This museum has quite a few artifacts from the era in which the Pilgrim's lived. There is a short video which runs continuously. Also featured in this museum is a Civil War exhibition. It is an interesting museum and visiting it is an educational experience.

It's a little museum but has some pretty interesting stuff. I liked seeing a few personal items from the pilgrims and reading about how they actually ended up coming to America. We didn't spend a lot of time there but thought it was worth the visit.
