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.

We stopped here on the way to Cape Cod. The film was good. My kids even enjoyed it. The rest of the museum was very small. It only takes about 20 minutes to see and read everything (with kids). It was pricey for our group...More

This is where American History starts. I'm not typically a museum goer, but this museum was great. Loved the video overview and the artifacts from the Mayflower. I would highly recommend.

Beautiful Stain glass windows when you enter. Start with the movie before you look around. There is a piece of the Plymouth rock here that they encourage you to touch.

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

The museum is well kept up, has fantastic exhibits and is a great learning experience. I would highly recommend watching the movie before looking at the exhibits in the first big hall. It really helps give the items context.

This museum is excellent. Seeing the actual artifacts was very helpful in imagining the Pilgrims life. We also enjoyed the art exhibit about the changing depictions of the Pilgrims in American art. This place is a must see in Plymouth.

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.
