Pilgrim Hall Museum is a gallery museum, displaying Native American and Pilgrim artifacts to tell the story of the country’s founding and traditions.

Pilgrim Hall has two types of exhibits in the museum: permanent and changing.

The permanent exhibit combines artifacts from our collections with historical information to illuminate the Pilgrim and Native American story to 1692, when Plymouth Colony came to an end. Visiting Pilgrim Hall’s permanent exhibit is an excellent way to learn Pilgrim history. You will see Pilgrim possessions which came over on the Mayflower, including Peregrine White’s cradle, William Bradford’s Bible and Myles Standish’s sword. You can enjoy a 15 minute orientation film, sit in a reproduction Great Chair and make a rubbing of a copy of Josiah Winslow’s grave stone.

Pilgrim Hall also mounts changing, temporary exhibits on topics of special interest. These exhibits are frequently built around an interesting segment of the collection or explore a particular Pilgrim-based theme as it evolves over time.

Pilgrim Hall offers a selection of online exhibits as well:
