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

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.

Stopped here with my daughter. We are Mayflower descendants, something I wanted my daughter to appreciate, so we stopped on our way to a Cape Cod vacation. As other reviewers have noted, the docents are very knowledgeable and friendly. We took the tour and enjoyed learning how the house had been modified over time. The group has done a nice... More

The Mayflower Society House is a marvelous piece of architecture, furnished with items appropriate to it's age, and beautifully preserved. The stairway in the house is worthy of a visit all by itself! The docents are extremely well informed, and provide an excellent description of the history of the house and its owners. This is a Don't Miss!
