Excellent walking tour and history on Plymouth and the pilgrims, their faith and politics. This also included some history walls and a small gift shop.

This is a small museum but packs in a lot about the history of the pilgrims. The video we were shown is as good as a live presentation. Walking tours are also offered, but we’d just missed one.

We did the non- walking tour - a fun “presentation “ by a very animated guy in period apparel. A child may enjoy that more than walking.
