This is a very interesting and well laid out museum which explains the history of the 'Pilgrim settlement' in an accessible way and with a large number of artifacts linked to named Mayflower passengers and their descendants. It also seeks to explain how this settlement...More

The other reviews are accurate that this is a small museum. It is geared to one historical event and I did find it informative on that matter. They do offer a treasure hunt for bids and even had a version for kids up to grade...More

Visited on a Saturday afternoon and it wasn't too busy. The museum is pricey ($12 for adults) and small so while the artifacts are high quality I'm not sure it was worth the price. I felt like they did a better job than other museums...More

I think it's impossible not to visit this important place. You can touch the history itself. I'm fond of embroidering and I was fascinated by the precious cross stitch work of Captain Miles's Standish daughter Loara. While visiting this museum everybody can discover a great...More

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.
