Reviewed 3 September 2013

I visited the Mayflower Society Library several times. The librarian was extremely helpful. They have some wonderful resources available to learn about the Pilgrims, your ancestors in the area, and the general area itself. I would highly recommend it as a stop for anyone visiting the area.

“Beautiful tour and great guides”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

A jewel in Plymouth, beautifully maintained and furnished with many of the items of the Pilgrims. The Mayflower Descendants should be very proud of this beautiful eighteenth century museum.

“Brilliant guides”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

The guides really make this place come to life. It was a shame that there are only two original pieces remaining in the house. I wish iIhad been told at the beginning that to be a member of the Society you need too be a proven decendant of a Pilgrim father as that would have made it even more interesting. Its excellent-go!

“Wow, a must visit”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

This was a complete surprise to us. We had found this museum while heading down to the Mayflower II. We found the guides to be extremely knowledgeable and engaged in the era and benefits of the museum/house from both the historical aspect but also for the educational prospective.

Being somewhat of a history buff and student of the era, I found the guide(s) to be extremely knowledgeable and significantly increased the value of the tour for us.

“Take a piece of history home after this tour”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Interesting and informative tour given by the docents. Most displays are original dating back to the 1600s and forward. The grounds are magnificent including the flowers and gardens. But it is the tour of the rooms in the house that is most interesting. There is a $5 entrance fee for non-members of the Society.
