“Learned alot about Pilgrims and their journey to America”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Excellent preservation of artifacts. The short documentary explained a lot about the Pilgrim journey and was our favorite part of the museum. Relatively inexpensive and offer a AAA/CAA discount. There is also a gift shop at the end of the tour.

“Nice small museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

We took our grandchildren to this and they were given "treasure hunt" surveys according to their grade levels and this helped them tour the museum and learn more from it. The artifacts and details of the first Plymouth settlers was terrific as was the personalized Civil War display.
The volunteer (Marie) at reception was very gracious and kind.

“Excellent suggestion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

After the visitor center this was our first stop. The short film was very well done. The original materials are worth every moment you can spare taking in the information held there. There are great examples of the arrival, the settling and their fortunate encounter with friendly first nation people. It really provided a full overview in a relatively small area. We were very impressed.

“An excellent introduction to Plymouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

This museum is small, but well done, and provides an excellent introduction to Plymouth and the Pilgrims. At the time of our visit, the special exhibition was of New England samplers. and it was great.

“Wonderful museum.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

I am not much into museums but since I have family history wanted to check this one out. They were very helpful to point me in the direction of things that I wanted to see. The gift shop was very nice also. Beautiful museum.
