Pilgrim Hall is a venerable establishment dedicated to artifacts related to the families who came over on the Mayflower. The museum was built in 1824 and is the oldest continuously-operating museum in America. The museum underwent a major renovation and restoration in 2008 when an entry pavillion and special exhibition area was installed.
On the day of my visit, a special exhibition of Massachusetts and Rhode Island samplers was installed in the special exhibition gallery. The exhibit was small, but well-mounted and very interesting. Of particular interest in the permanent galleries are artifacts that belonged to the pilgrims including a magnificent great chair, a very early joined-chest, some bibles, and some objects from archeological digs in the area. This museum is small, but well worth the visit.
