This museum has a wonderful video about the Pilgrims and the native people. A number of household possessions are on display and lots of background information. I checked the museum website and found a huge amount of well-presented historical information there.

You start with an excellent video setting out the history of the Pilgrims before seeing some of the artefacts which were brought over by them in 1620. Fascinating stuff.

This museum is a must see when you go to Plymouth. If you know the basic history of Plymouth it is not enough, this museum will educate you about the pilgrims and the surrounding area and answers all questions about the first settlers... awesome!

It was an okay place to stop and get out of the rain. We were led on a "scavenger hunt" but our guide never gave enough time for the kids to look for the answers. We were also accosted about having backpacks & water bottles...More

This is a very interesting museum, the oldest in the country. We watched the video first which was well made and informative. They have many artifacts, some that actually came over on the Mayflower. It was well worth the small entrance fee.

1.5 hrs Including the film should be sufficient. Limited seating for the film could add extra time. It will depend how many are in your group and how many other people are there.
