A small stop if you have time!

A great building and small store. If you have time you should stop and look around. We liked the customer service.

If you want to treat yourself or friends at home then this is the ideal place to go. Beautiful individual handcrafted jewellery, glassware and pottery, all made in the USA, displayed in a delightful setting with the museum next door. Highly recommended.

Stop to see if you are in the neighborhood (next to Jenney Museum). Only $2 entry. Allow 15-30 minutes depending on how much you want to hear from the guide.

Small museum but a treasure trove of pottery, jewellery and all kinds of arts and crafts which are actually made in the USA. So many souvenirs we found were made in China so it was great to have a real piece of American pottery to bring home (It was very well wrapped in the shop and survived in our suitcase

This 1640 home is the oldest remaining one in Plymouth. It is unbelieveably authentic and allows visitors to experience how the Pilgrims lived.

House consists of a very nice gift shop and one room with historical artifacts. They suggest a $2 donation to enter the room. Near the Jenny Grist Mill so easy to just step into on the way to the Grist Mill.
