A lovely museum filled with history on the pilgrims of Plymouth. The treasure hunt made it more exciting watching my 5 and 6yr old look for items that had meaning. A quick movie and museum to get the idea of how it all started

Worth a visit. Beautifully maintained & very informative. Scavenger hunt in operation for children when we visited. Great way to encourage them to read the information panels. Not overly expensive.

The oldest museum in the country tells the Pilgrin story. There are many original possessions of that group who came in 1620. There is a new exhibit about the Waumanoag natives.

There are many wonderful relics here including Bibles belonging to some of the Pilgrims, household items, etc. There is a 15 minute video entitled "One Small Candle" which is really good and gives good Pilgrim history... I very much enjoyed this place.

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.
