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

Excellent take in for everyone, this is the Gristmill an ingenious device and necessary part of existence for the settlement. The tour is informative and well presented, did not see it operate that happens on Friday and Saturday.

This museum delivers the personal side of the pilgrim story. Here you'll meet the men, women and children who started the colony. Fascinating artefacts and personal items which bring it all to life. Well worth a visit.

I found the museum intriguing, interesting, and very informative! If you think you know everything about what the pilgrims experienced, and you believe all you would talk to grade school about the pilgrims, you must visited to the find the truth! They have a lot of artifacts, which are either directly from the pilgrims staying in Plymouth, or from that... More

The visitor's center told us about the museum. What I liked best was the storytelling. The video was well done -- not boring. And i was surprised to see the original items from the Mayflower there. If you like history, you'll love this place. Plan on spending at least an hour here. Fascinating.
