As a Christian myself, it was so refreshing to hear the story of faith as lived out by the Pilgrims. I visited with my siblings who have mobility issues, so we took the non-walking version of the Plymouth tour and the economics tour (Pilgrims' change from socialism to capitalism). The guide/owner was very informative and entertaining. His knowledge was broad,... More

If you love America's story of faith and the true history of the Pilgrims, you'll love visiting with these great folks. They just opened a wonderful new exhibit called "The Family- Cornerstone of Society." They're the best! You'll be blessed!

We were led on this informative and interesting walk and talk by Leo. He's very knowledgeable about the area and all things Plymouth and pilgrim. He took all the time we needed on the walk about town and was happy to answer any questions we had. This was an activity that would be great for all ages (but does require... More

Leo gave us an early historic walk around town. This was before the season really opened but he & his wife were so accommodating and the history that Leo gave us was entertaining and informative both for us and our teenage grandkids!

Leo was our guide. As the other folks have said he was incredibly knowledgeable. We did the walking tour and not the monument tour. We saw the mill, Plymouth Rock and several other interesting sites around town. It was great to hear about pieces of history that I had forgotten or did not understand. Reasonably priced and we walked and... More

The couple running the Jenny Museum were really warm and friendly. Leo was a wonderful guide on the walking tour and had lots of unique stories to tell. This place is definitely worth a visit.

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
