This was a great museum to visit with so much history regarding the pilgrims and their journey to Plymouth, and the hardships they endured on their journey from England, Amsterdam and finally to Plymouth, MA. The magnificent Henry Sargent painting "Landing of the Pilgrims" has just been brought back to the museum after considerable conservation and restoration. The painting is... More

Pilgrim Hall Museum is. So many artifacts that belonged to members of the original Plymouth Pilgrim colony, and the museum houses a piece of the actual Plymouth, which visitors are actually encouraged to touch. The story of the Pilgrims is presented in a clear concise manner, and it pointed out many facts of which we had not been aware about... More

I visited the museum with good friends. I have not been here in years. The new addition to the building is nice. There were many things that I had forgot since I was in this area and the museum helped to remind me how much important history there is in Plymouth and how difficult the first year or three had...

The collection of Pilgrim artifacts here is really astounding and the film about the Pilgrims really set the stage for everything we saw. We enjoyed searching for artifacts from our Mayflower ancestor, and we were also fortunate to be there while the Henry Sargent painting "The Landing of the Pilgrims" was being restored. Even the teen in our group enjoyed... More

This museum has much of the original artwork that you have seen in photos so many times. 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. This is a huge painting with life size figures that has hung at Pilgrim Hall since it was built. Viewing the restorers at work is a unique experience and worth the visit. They will be... More
