This venerate museum collected relics and stories from Plymouth's Pilgrim descendant families long before such was popular. That means authentic artifacts from the Pilgrim Era have been saved and are on display along with the stories of their owners and descendants. The continuity is amazing. Well done. A "must" to see for every Plymouth visitor.

The museum is a well set out place that is worth the reasonable entry fee. The story about the Pilgrims was detailed in many aspects but there is not much detail on the time in Leiden.

Good movie and some great artifacts, but the museum seemed focused on the tercentenary of the landing rather than the landing and pilgrim experience.

We visited the museum today and really enjoyed the introductory video in the lower hall and seeing all the original possessions and artefacts including a baby's cot, an original needlework sampler, lots of high backed chairs and much much more. Upstairs there are paintings of the pilgrims including the first thanksgiving meal where venison actually featured more than turkeys! And... More

Situated on Court Street in the centre of Plymouth, the museum is perfect for those who love history. The museum opens from 09:30 hrs - 16:30 hrs and it is closed all January. The museum is Americas oldest museum and was built in 1824 - you can get to touch a piece of Pilgrim rock and see some of the... More

The scavenger hunt was amazing and very educational, the museum store was awesome as well. My son enjoyed every minute of it and the people are beyond kind. We are planning another... More

This museum is filled with genuine artifacts. It provides an excellent introduction to the Plymouth experience. Plan on spending at least an hour here. There is much that will interest school age children.

Relatively small museum but with a lot a 'punch'. Great introductory film at the start of the museum. It has artifacts (furniture, bibles!, legal documents) belonging to the pilgrims. Incredible that they've lasted and wonderful to see. Also some exhibits on the local Native American tribes which is missing from the history I grew up with. Very gratifying and well... More

Expensive for what to is, but support is essential for these places and it was raining. Interesting place to to see some artefacts from the early families. We spent about an hour in there trying to dry out. Two small floors with exhibits up to the modern day. Interesting to an adult who can read the notes and watch the... More
