Enjoyed this house very much and everyone on staff was smiling and helpful. They went out their way to make you feel welcome. Never been in a house quite like this - upstairs is COOL.

Wheelchair accessible and great museum. The old things on display were very interesting. The lighting was very good in order to view everything. We didn't feel rushed.

We drove around looking for the house, but it was not easily accessible nor did not appear to be open. I was a bit disappointed.

My husband was doing family research in the Mayflower libary so I took the opportunity to tour the house. Wonderful guide who gave lots of interesting details as we went through the rooms.
