Interesting artifacts and historical information of the lives of those who helped found New England. Don't miss immersing yourself in history by including a trip to Plimouth Plantation and definitely don't miss the National Monument of the Forefathers - the hidden gem of Plymouth .... have fun!

We stopped in Plymouth on our way from Cape Cod to the airport in Boston. Lovely city with sooo much history. Very informative museum with fascinating artifacts and a very good movie. I wasn't aware that one really know all the names of the first settlers and who has survived the first winter and who not.

After living in Plymouth for nearly 5 years, it took visitors from out of state to nudge me into visiting the museum. I'm glad I went. It presents an informative and balanced history of these early settlers and includes many fascinating artifacts that give us a glimpse into what their life was like. One that truly amazed me was an... More

This was a great way to spend an afternoon. There was a treasure hunt scaled to the ages of my three children that really encouraged engagement with the exhibits. I loved the piece of Plymouth Rock that you're allowed to touch and take pictures with. It was the last day of the year that they were open and we practically... More

This Musuem was very interesting and informative, and I learned a lot from the displays there. They had artifacts both from the Pilgrims' time as well as artifacts from people who wrote about or studied the Pilgrims. It's not as interesting for very small children, but I think school age children who have learned about the Pilgrims would enjoy some... More

This was our first visit here although we have been to Plymouth many times. I did not know they had so many artifacts of the history of the area. Even the short film caught your attention. I would recommend a visit here especially for first time visitors.

It's a lovely building with nice staff but Iwas underwhelmed with the exhibits. I was expecting more original artifacts. Having said that I'm from the UK so the examples of furniture are things I'm quite used to seeing. There were some nice paintings and everything was well organised but not everyone's cup of tea.

This was part of our home made Plymouth walking tour. A very well laid out museum which taught us a great deal about the Founding Fathers. Good video to start with. Excellent paintings and good use of genuine artefacts.Not to be missed.
