Pilgrim Hall Museum opens for the season, featuring permanent gallery displays of original 17th-century artifacts that reveal the story of the Pilgrim settlers and the Native Wampanoag people of early Plymouth Colony. The Museum offers three exhibit galleries, changing exhibitions, a superb orientation film, and an unmatched collection of the actual belongings of the Mayflower Pilgrims. From the humble doll of child passenger Mary Chilton, to the sword of Captain Myles Standish, and the well-worn Bible of Governor William Bradford, authentic objects of 17th-century life offer visitors an intimate gateway to the earliest American immigrant experience.
Special exhibition, pathFOUNDERS: Women of Plymouth, on display through March 8th, presents original objects reflecting four centuries of women’s experience and multimedia presentations giving voice to women of early Plymouth Colony, including Susanna White Winslow, Awashonks, Elinor Billington, Priscilla Mullins Alden, Hobbamock’s wife, and Mary Chilton Winslow.
