Touch the Rock and Experience the Journey in America's oldest, continually operating museum! Pilgrim Hall Museum, founded in 1824, is the oldest continuously operating museum in the country. Step through our doors and immerse yourself in the 17th-century history of the Pilgrims and Wampanoag, presented in the world’s finest collection of early Plymouth possessions.
Pilgrim Hall Museum offers three exhibit galleries, a superb orientation film, and changing exhibitions that reveal the experiences of the English families that settled in Plymouth, MA. Located in the heart of Plymouth’s cultural district and less than 5 miles from Plimoth Plantation, Pilgrim Hall Museum is steps away from restaurants, galleries, shops, performance centers, and an exuberant nightlife. With the historic waterfront, whale watch cruises, and Plymouth Rock within walking distance, the museum is a great anchorage for your group to enjoy Plymouth’s lively historic downtown. A group excursion to the museum fits readily into day trips from Boston or Cape Cod, or offers a highlight to your extended stay in the area.
