  • Really well done museum. Tells the story about the first pilgrims that no history books tell you about growing up. The exhibits were very well done and had a surprisingly large amount of age appropriate artifacts. The videos at the beginning of the museum are a great intro into explaining where the pilgrims came from, why they came, the timeline of their journey and their interaction with the native Americans (along with all of the common misconceptions associated with all of those topics). The museum itself isn't massive but is appropriately sized for the content available. I'm not sure if the place had its own parking but we parked on the street. Price wise it was a good deal ($35 family pass for 5 adults).
  • Interesting, informative museum. The building itself is fascinating, dating in the oldest parts to 1830. Video featuring both European settler and Native women's experiences is very well done. Appreciate the attention to Native information for more balanced history. Portrait gallery stunning in scale.
