I mentioned this in the review of Isaac's restaurant. We came here first before going to lunch. Interesting information regarding the Pilgrims arriving to the New World. An enjoyable take.

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.

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...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.

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.

To the Museum staff: I work as editorial director for Christian Record Services for the Blind, an organization that provides reading services, at no cost, to people who are legally blind. CRSB serves approximately 20,000 readers with braille, audio, and large-print periodicals and a lending library. I will be on the East Coast in July, and would like to arrange an interview with a docent or historian at Pilgrim Hall Museum. I will include the interview in our Vantage Point magazine, which is distributed on MP3 disc, at no cost, to about six thousand subscribers. The best time for me would be sometime on July 12. If that proves not to be a good time but another day that week would be workable, I'm still in the process of setting my itinerary, so I expect there are other possibilities. I'll look forward to hearing from you.
