It's a little museum but has some pretty interesting stuff. I liked seeing a few personal items from the pilgrims and reading about how they actually ended up coming to America. We didn't spend a lot of time there but thought it was worth the visit.

If your looking for a quick easy more accurate history of the Pilgrim's arrival and settlement this is the place for you. Price is very reasonable at less than ten dollars per person with discounts available. While the museum is relatively small it does provide you with a history of the arrival and settlement. There is a 15 minute video which is very good as background. Worth the time to visit. There is free parking behind the building. There also is a small Civil War exhibit. The staff are very friendly and pleasant.

I enjoyed my visit here. The admission was reasonable $8 adults, $7 Seniors, (I don't remember the price for children). There was a special Plymouth and the Civil War exhibit that was nicely put together. We then went downstairs watched a 15 minute film and saw more artifacts from the pilgrims. We then went back upstairs to the main exhibit hall. In that hall were a lot of paintings on the walls and some other pilgrim artifacts. You will probably recognize some of the painting from pictures in history books you read at school. There is also a piece of the Plymouth rock that you can touch.

no photos are allowed to be taken in the Museum.

There is also a small parking lot behind the museum (free) while visiting the museum

There is also a research library by the main exhibit hall that is only open to serious researchers with an appointment

Excellent preservation of artifacts. The short documentary explained a lot about the Pilgrim journey and was our favorite part of the museum. Relatively inexpensive and offer a AAA/CAA discount. There is also a gift shop at the end of the tour.

We took our grandchildren to this and they were given "treasure hunt" surveys according to their grade levels and this helped them tour the museum and learn more from it. The artifacts and details of the first Plymouth settlers was terrific as was the personalized Civil War display.
The volunteer (Marie) at reception was very gracious and kind.
