The guide, Leo, is fantastic and a wealth of information about Plymouth (we bought his book!). He made history come alive for our 2 daughters and the walking tour was the highlight of our day trip to Plymouth. A+++

A great place to gain a richer, deeper, and greater, understanding of who the Pilgrims were and why they came- or rather, escaped - to build a new country. This museum offers something others don't. I want to love the Plantation as it is well done in many ways, but it has become so watered down and revisionist in telling... More

My parents and I visited the Jenney Museum and took the walking tour. We had such a wonderful time. My parents are older and it was not too much walking. The stops were full of insightful information about the founding of our country. It was the highlight to our trip. My parents are still ranting and raving about it and... More

Not much to see on inside. Mill was not working, not sure if it ever will. No grinding demonstrations. Not worth interior admission. Good photo opportunities outside. Herring run beside it a must see in early spring. Jenny Pond across from museum a favorite to view bird life ( swans, ducks, geese) and turtles. Large FREE parking no time limit,... More

Took the general tour of Plymouth from Leo - it was just as good as we'd hoped. Fascinating details & information shared on this hour-plus long tour. Would highly recommend this tour. I'm sure the others offered were excellent too, but time did not allow us to take more than one.

The Jenney Museum tour is my favorite historical attraction in Plymouth. I have been on this tour about 10 times, as I take my fourth graders on a field trip there each year. I've also been with friends and family and am never disappointed. Leo and Nancy run the museum and the walking tour. They created the museum from scratch,... More

My husband and I did the pilgrim economics tour which was so interesting! Leo had us so intrtigued with his vast knowledge and witty stories. It was thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable; I would recommend it highly. It and Plimoth Plantation were the best oart of our trip. Loved it,

I visited here based on trip advisor reviews and expected this to be a tour. Instead, I paid $6 to watch a film about the mill next door. Don't get me wrong, it was an interesting film that was very well done, but "museum" isn't really the right term to use as there's little to it - just two small... More

Our visit to Jenney Grist Mill was one of many we have made both in UK and in New England. This visit was by far the best as not only did we learn the history of the mill but also have a demonstration of how it worked. This involved the process from stopping the water flow in order to position... More
