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.

The entry fee is a bit pricey for the size of this museum, but it contains lots of 17th century artifacts, which made it worth it, imo. For example, see a chair and bible belonging to William Bradford, Mayflower passenger and longtime Governor. Impressive paintings,...More

Without this very interesting museum the trip to Plymouth would have been a complete waste of time. Much of the rest of the town was shut on a Tuesday!

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.
