TOURS ARE POSTPONED UNTIL THE REOPENING OF THE JENNEY INTERPRETIVE CENTRE. Please visit their website for updates.
The Jenney Interpretive Centre presents a 45-minute interpretive tour of the National Monument to the Forefathers. This 81-foot statue tells the whole Pilgrim story, why they left England, how they governed themselves, and more. Leo Martin, Director of Pilgrim History at the Jenney, takes tourists around the statue, explaining the rich history of the Pilgrim story dressed in period costume. He begins with the Pilgrims’ journey from England to Plymouth, bringing to life their stories of faith, their struggles, their beliefs about family life, education, law and liberty, and more. The National Monument to the Forefathers is thought to be the largest solid granite monument in the United States. Reservations are required and can be made by calling the museum at 508-747-4544. The tour begins at the Jenney Interpretive Centre, located at 48 Summer Street in Plymouth. (No tours on Sundays).
