We were looking for things that related to our ancestors who were on the Mayflower. The front desk lady told us much about the history of the museum and she even printed out a paper showing what things in the museum belonged our great uncle in 1620s. Though we did not find anything from our great grandfather on the Mayflower,... More

To really learn about the Pilgrims, the hardships, the reasons they came & so much more, this museum is a must. They also have many interesting artifacts including part of Plymouth Rock. That's right, part of Plymouth Rock that you can touch & have a pic taken with. Definitely worth the admission price on $10.

This museum was my favorite attraction in Plymouth. It has many of the Mayflower passengers' possessions. It was really cool to see. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They have a scavenger hunt for kids to do. This is a "must see" in Plymouth. You'll get more of a Pilgrim experience here than at any other attraction in Plymouth.

I came here as a chaperone with the 8th grade class from our school. The students stayed occupied learning at each of the exhibits. The artwork on the walls is beautiful and the replica of the pilgrims attire is true to the time period. The book/gift store is filled with wonderful finds.

This is a "Must See" if you are visiting Plymouth. There are items which actually belonged to the pilgrims including the White Cradle. There are numerous rooms filled with exhibits and a very nice video presentation. There is also an outstanding gift shop.

Almost everything anybody may wish to know and see concerning a seminal episode in America's history, and this right at the place where events unfolded. If you visit the area, do not miss it. And should you plan a bit ahead, the town is preparing and girding up for "Plymouth 2020" marking the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower's landing.

This is apparently the oldest museum in the US. The basement area contains exhibits and information about the Pilgrim landings and settlement. There is a film telling the story of the Founding Fathers, although the experts telling the story were a little monotonous and it wouldn't appeal to young people. The upstairs temporary exhibit was all about the town of... More

Smart companion visit to the Mayflower. Well worth 2 hours of your time to view and learn the accurate history of Pilgrims coming to America. We especially liked the huge paintings/renderings of what the Landing might have looked like.

Fascinating, fun for all ages. Clean, well lighted. Welcoming staff. Teens and pre-teens loved the interaction and scavenger hunt program. Highly recommend it for all ages.
