The staff is helpful, the video presentation is informative and just long enough, and there are many Pilgrim artifacts to view. I was thrilled to see pieces from my ancestors, John Alden and the Fuller family.

Went to Plymouth to do research on the Pilgrims. Thought thus museum, being the biggest museum on the Pilgrims in the country, would be highly beneficial. But it was a dinky, small place with no value whatsoever apart from the furniture and some of the...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.
