this museum is very well laid out and the artifacts are very interesting; The video presentation brings to life the Pilgrims in a very real way and one needs to take the time to view this. if one enjoys history this museum should definitely be on your plans.

We were stopping by to get a brief enrichment about Plymouth, so we decided to visit the museum. They show a short film about the Mayflower and its voyage plus it has various items pertaining to the vessel and its people. The film and displays explained to us how half the Pilgrims survived that first winter and how they befriended with the Indians. I give it 45min-1 hour.

A fabulous small museum with unique items to see. Very rare treasures surviving from the original arrival of the Separatists (better but erroneously known as "Pilgrims.") A must-see!!

Had cousins in from Oregon. This Museum was recently renovated and enlarged. Just a fabulous place, with videos playing in different rooms, authentic furniture and artifacts from the 1600's to the early 1900's. My cousins were very impressed and so was I, and I'm a resident.

Well made video about Pilgrim arrival - must see. Great introduction to both Pilgrim and settler cultures on lower floor. Wonderful old (and large) artwork depicting Pilgrim life/arrival in Main Hall. Special exhibits.
