The museum was great. Interesting stuff on display. The man who was working the day I visited didn’t say a think to us. I was hoping for some explanation.

There is a very interesting fire truck inside that you can view. Also many other informative displays including artifacts and a courthouse reproduction upstairs!

I like a good courthouse type museum and this one appeared especially interesting. As it was though it was shut. What is the point of having a visitor attraction if you don’t open it?

Located just below burial hill and very near the main street, this was an unexpected find. It had a very interesting docent, a range of exhibits, and access upstairs to the original court. It can be covered in about 30 minutes. Like with other attractions,...More

NOT TO BE MISSED....see original court records and actiivities of the Pilgrim settlement and later Massachusetts colony. Part of our American heritage is the early respect to law and its role in daily lives of colonies.

For real history buffs, this is a great find. Up the hill from the waterfront. Sometimes there is construction going on but wonderful spot to see. Wooden Court House where John Adams served. Stop by if you like the beginning of justice in our country.
