“The oldest house in Plimoth!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

You can go though this house but you cant go upstairs? I like seeing the architecture of old houses and how they are built.

“Oldest house - enjoyed this”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Free entrance, donations gratefully accepted to keep running. Small but very nice to check out. Right near Jenney House. Informative.

“Wonderful place to visit”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

This is a wonderful small "museum" to visit while in Plymouth. The main part of the house is a gift store that only sells products made by artists in the United States. Absolutely beautiful, BEAUTIFUL products. I'm a bit of a minimalist, but was so tempted several times by the hand-thrown pottery. The lady working that day (July 10th, noon) was so sweet and pleasant. It was such an enjoyable stop.

“What life was like”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

A good glimpse of what life was like for the settlers. From the low height of the doorways, the narrowness of the stairway, and the simple furnishings you get a sense of what their life was like. I would recommend not just peeking in but spend some time in reflection.

“A quick worthwhile stop”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

This two room museum & shop is a quick look into the simplicity of Pilgrim life. They ask for a donation, but don't demand an admission fee. The gift shop is a step or two above the touristy kitsch! Take a few minutes to see the house. It's right near the grist mill and the cemetery.
