It is worth a stop and inexpensive. If you do all the history stuff in the area it is supportive of the local history. Some nice artifacts about the pilgrims and also a nice video showing the history. very slow paced and only worth about an hour of your time

The building is beautiful. On a main street but parking ewas not bad. The articles are displayed in an organized and thoughtful way. Always love items from our past to give us a true sense of our backgrounds and history

Quite small, but the only place where you can see items that actually made the trek here on the Mayflower. Very good as an introduction and to introduce children to the story. Worth a visit just because it's America's First Museum...make sure you watch the short film in the downstairs gallery.

A definite must see! So much history. Sit through the brief film for some interesting information about the journey and the settlement. Many original items from the period.

This place is well worth the 1-2 hours you should spend looking. It gives a great insight to the area.

I am a local resident that never took advantage of some of the wonderful tourist attractions in my "back yard". My husband and I spent a morning here reading everything and learning many new things about the Mayflower, the pilgrims and the local history.

We really enjoyed the movie about the pilgrims, but the information from one of the volunteers Andrew Osborn was amazing it brought everything to life

This is a great starting point to get a foundation of information before going to Plimouth Plantation. There are many interesting artifacts and stories of Pilgrim life which makes one really appreciate what these people went through to get to the new world.

Lovely museum contains actual Pilgrim artifacts. Artist depictions of pilgrims comical as the subject matter was not fully understood when paintings were composed. Descendants of pilgrims need to make a point of stopping in here.

The museum had a few artifacts, but I'm not sure any came from the original settlement. There were many paintings, but the dates were from the 19th century. It took about an hour to see. I would not go again. Senior rate was $8.00.....I am not sure it was worth it. Also, there is a museum sign down by the... More
