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.

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.

For a family price of $30, it is a terrific value. The kids loved the scavenger hunt, which really lets them explore them museum and learn at their own pace (they also loved the postcard prize at the end!). Neat artifacts too!

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.
