This museum offers a short movie about the pilgrims from the Mayflower. There are original items owned by Mayflower passengers on display. If you have Mayflower ancestors, this really makes it a more meaningful experience, though it is also an excellent history experience for the...More

There are many wonderful relics here including Bibles belonging to some of the Pilgrims, household items, etc. There is a 15 minute video entitled "One Small Candle" which is really good and gives good Pilgrim history... I very much enjoyed this place.

Without this very interesting museum the trip to Plymouth would have been a complete waste of time. Much of the rest of the town was shut on a Tuesday!

This is a very interesting and well laid out museum which explains the history of the 'Pilgrim settlement' in an accessible way and with a large number of artifacts linked to named Mayflower passengers and their descendants. It also seeks to explain how this settlement...More

1.5 hrs Including the film should be sufficient. Limited seating for the film could add extra time. It will depend how many are in your group and how many other people are there.
