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

Walking the streets of Plymouth, we saw a sign indicating "Free Admission" to tour the 1749 Court House on the Town Square. "Sure, why not!," We entered to find a fascinating step back in history with artifacts that were amazing. The hostess couldn't be more...More

Easy to imagine what this place sounded like in the days of early law and order. This is a must see along with the Church and graveyard up the hill a bit.

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.

This is a free museum in the center of Plymouth and uphill from the main harbor area. It was built in 1749. There is not a lot here but there is a fire engine from 1828, and the old town hearse. There are some other...More
