Really well done. Depending on how interested you are this could be a one hour visit or 3. The scavenger hunts arranged for the kids were some of the best I have experienced at a museum. Our 10 & 7 year olds got different hunts geared towards reaches level. It absolutely made them find out more information as they hunted... More

Our family wandered into the museum mostly to escape the heat and discovered a really nice historical synopsis of the Pilgrim experience. It complements the outdoor Plimoth Plantation exhibits and story in a way that reinforced the period history for people of all ages. Clean facility and exhibits. Good narratives. 30-60 minutes to take it in and move on to... More

A very well done history museum. Had a very nice visit and learned things my history teacher left out. Much more in depth. It was awesome to see actual articles from that time period. For $8 you can't go wrong.

Visited with 2 other families including children age 5-14. We had a great time looking through the museum exhibits. The kids took away a lot of information. We plan to go back & build on what we already learned. Staff was extremely helpful and gave us things to look for based on the childrens' ages.

Great little museum to see actual Plymouth history. Great movie gives overview of the history of Mayflower. Real artifacts on display. also has a nice little gift shop. spend about 1- 1.5 hours. I'm not sure little kids would appreciate the museum.

It was a very touching visit and it made us understand the deep faith this group of men and women had. The museum is very interesting, especially the video that tells all the story of Pilgrims and the difficulties they had in the new country. Even if it's a small museum it's worth to go there.

Museum contained many small items related to the Pilgrims and their story. Great oil paintings hang in the main hall. Our 8 year old grandson was a bit bored, but the museum had a scavenger hunt the day we were there, which helped to keep him entertained.

I was let down simply because you are not allowed to take video or pictures at this location. I realize they want to protect the integrity of the place by not having a lot of pictures of what is inside floating around. Seeing that pictures have been posted with reviews I can tell not everyone follows that rule. The museum... More

The small museum contains a fascinating slice of America's history. The collection includes paintings, clothing, artifacts, documents & more. Found the lower level's video & artifacts to be particularly interested. Also, am personally grateful to the gift shop volunteer who helped me research my own Pilgrim ancestor through a for-sale volume (which I ultimately purchased for further reference).
