Museum’s goal: to tell the story of the Pilgrims and indigenous people through artifacts, exhibits

The nation’s oldest continuously operating public museum, the Pilgrim Hall Museum uses artifacts, film and historical information to tell the 17th century story of the Pilgrims and Plymouth Colony as well as that of the Wampanoag, the indigenous people who lived in the area for over 13,000 years before the arrival of the Mayflower. Among its extraordinary collection of 17th century artifacts visitors will discover Myles Standish’s rapier as well as his razor, and William Bradford’s silver wine cup. The Bradford and Alden Bibles, the cradle brought on the Mayflower by Susanna White, who gave birth to Peregrine on board the ship, and a sampler embroidered by Myles Standish’s daughter, Loara, are also on display as well as many works of art and furniture.

At the Craft Center, see how crafts and herbal remedies were made, and step aboard the Mayflower II in Plymouth Harbor.
