“History revived”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The movie was good. The artifacts were of interest. The story of the Mayflower highlights the importance of our Pilgrim forefathers.

Excellent gift shop, with many books of interest to historians, teachers and genealogists. Must stop each time I visit Plymouth.

“What a Gem!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Don't visit Plymouth without stopping at Pilgrim Hall Museum. Very nice smaller museum with an amazing amount of Pilgrim history. Watch the short (15 min) video about the Pilgrims - very informative. Amazing artifacts from the Pilgrim's plus related objects of the first settlers of the area. Also some really neat Native American items.

We really enjoyed doing the treasure hunt (for kids and tweens) with our daughter. Also the current exhibit "Written, Printed, and Drawn" is an amazing collection of objects and transcribed letters from pre-Revolution through the Civil War.

Take an hour and enjoy this wonderful museum. The staff is wonderfully friendly and you walk away with a new appreciation of what it must have been like living in early New England.

“Plymouth History”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Loved learning more about the Pilgrims and seeing items they brought with them. We were amazed to see the Geneva Bible brought over on the Mayflower
