Small museum, worth the trip. No admission fee (donation box). Local docent brought the museum to life. Besides the usual artifacts and maps, an authentic winter lodge is recreated out back. Set aside about an hour.

A must for anyone interested in the Indians who helped the Pilgrims survive their first two years and who lived in peace with the Pilgrims for fifty years. Very helpful and informative staff.
