good on a rainy day and if you don't know anything about the pilgrims and plymouth settlement . It is slightly expensive, but will help you to fully understand the history if that is something that you want to do. I would rather be outside

... goes a long way! DEFinitely a great place to expand your knowledge of Plymouth History... indeed, our nation's history! Always interesting - have gone over three times, in one year - and offering unique traveling displays. Just restored a major painting, and I hope they can do more!

As visiting Brits, this museum finally made sense of the whole founding fathers story. Just the right size and extremely well presented. The best bit of Plymouth's tourist trail in our view!

This is a small museum, but still interesting enough. It's also a nice walk from the Radisson or John Carver Inn.

A "must see" while visiting Plimoth. much akin to Salem's Witch Museum, The Pilgrim Hall gives you a brief and in depth view of the Plymouth settlement. Should be included with Plymouth Plantation, The Mayflower and The National Monument to the Forefathers!

This is a great museum that details the Mayflower and the Pilgrims landing at Plymouth. It's small so you can get through it in an hour. We enjoyed the 12 minute film and actual artifacts from the Mayflower. For such a small museum I thought the admission price was high.

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
