We were helped by the librarian to begin our search for Mayflower ancestors. She was helpful and guided us with thoughtful ideas to work upon when we arrived home.
I visited the Mayflower Society Library several times. The librarian was extremely helpful. They have some wonderful resources available to learn about the Pilgrims, your ancestors in the area, and the general area itself. I would highly recommend it as a stop for anyone visiting the area.
A jewel in Plymouth, beautifully maintained and furnished with many of the items of the Pilgrims. The Mayflower Descendants should be very proud of this beautiful eighteenth century museum.
The guides really make this place come to life. It was a shame that there are only two original pieces remaining in the house. I wish iIhad been told at the beginning that to be a member of the Society you need too be a proven decendant of a Pilgrim father as that would have made it even more interesting.... More

It was a nice surprise while visiting Plymouth and seeing the "Rock!" We had six in our family with three teenagers and a six year old. All were well behaved and enjoyed... More
We stopped by the Mayflower House for a quick visit on our way out of Plymouth after researching our Mayflower descendants. A tour was in progress but the curator was there and she took us around and showed us the items that had belonged to Brewster & Hopkins family. The house is just beautiful. It is a very nice addition... More
My 9 year-old was not patient enough to go through the museum looking at every item, but he left with a better understanding of the pilgrims and their tribulations. A "treasure hunt" helped him stay interested, but it was not engaging enough for him. My wife and I loved it!. The admission was only $6 (AAA) each. My boy was... More
