I think it's impossible not to visit this important place. You can touch the history itself. I'm fond of embroidering and I was fascinated by the precious cross stitch work of Captain Miles's Standish daughter Loara. While visiting this museum everybody can discover a great...More

Visited with family. Museum is really small, not much to the exhibits and not enough to justify the cost. Also the counter lady was rude. Just not a good experience.

This was an excellent museum which explored the reality and myths around the Pilgrims. There was a contemporary exhibit on the history of the wedding dress which was very well done, but better hurry, only runs through Dec. 2017! One can do this museum in...More

It's not a very large museum, but its impact is quite impressive. If you love history and appreciate the Mayflower story and odyssey of the Pilgrims, then you'll enjoy this museum. There are a number of impressive paintings paying tribute to the Pilgrim landing at...More

This two-story museum took us about an hour to visit. We enjoyed the video about the Pilgrims and the museum was full of relics, paintings, and information about the Pilgrims.

This museum has a wonderful video about the Pilgrims and the native people. A number of household possessions are on display and lots of background information. I checked the museum website and found a huge amount of well-presented historical information there.

I honestly enjoyed this more than I thought I would. There is a short film to watch which goes into the history of the Pilgrims, before they left England and why, and then also what took place when they arrived here. There are a lot...More

Only a small museum, but a good way to understand the history of the Mayflower and the Pilgrim Fathers, and some interesting artefacts to see that connected with some of the pilgrims. Well worth a couple of hours to visit. It was especially interesting to...More

You start with an excellent video setting out the history of the Pilgrims before seeing some of the artefacts which were brought over by them in 1620. Fascinating stuff.

This museum is a must see when you go to Plymouth. If you know the basic history of Plymouth it is not enough, this museum will educate you about the pilgrims and the surrounding area and answers all questions about the first settlers... awesome!

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.
