We went to buy some books (Library has a five buck useage fee a day, but you probably know that if you want to use it and do not care.) and stayed for a tour. It was delightful, interesting, and the volunteer docents were nice, and kind. Fun to see another time period and another take on Plymouth and Days... More

This place is wonderful if you are a descendant of someone on the Mayflower. Staff is extremely helpful and materials are excellent. A must visit for anyone into family history

Very interesting to see and talk to the volunteer. We were in a hurry and she kindly gave us a special short tour.

Tour of the house was just okay. Tour guides were scattered in what they told you about and it was mostly about the furnishings of the house rather than the society or the people who owned it. I would have preferred to hear about the families than the tiles that surround the fireplaces or a lamp. There is a library... More

Very informative and helpful place. Although on the steep side, I purchased some reference material in the gift store.

We only visited the library, but our visit was very satisfactory! We were seeking information on how to proceed with Mayflower research, and the librarian was very helpful, offering suggestions for further research, family societies, etc. There is a fee to use the library. Allow ample time if you are panning to use the many resources available to you.

It was such an honor to visit with the Mayflower Society and tour the house. Everyone was very welcoming and answered all the questions that we had. As a descendent of the Mayflower, it was so special. We were also able to meet a cousin that volunteers at the society which made this visit extra special to trade our family's... More

We tried to visit this but an intern opened the door several times to inform us they were busy, had a visit from the society president and other things going on. He did not once invite us in nor did she when she came outside. She was pleasant but frankly I would have thought basic hospitality would have been to... More

As a decendant of the Mayflower and member of the society, my wife was honored to visit the home. It is beautiful and the people there were very welcoming and kind.
