Excellent walking tour and history on Plymouth and the pilgrims, their faith and politics. This also included some history walls and a small gift shop.

This is a small museum but packs in a lot about the history of the pilgrims. The video we were shown is as good as a live presentation. Walking tours are also offered, but we’d just missed one.

What a wonderful tour. We were looking for something that covered the Monuments in Plymouth and Leo delivers with such an amazing amount of knowledge and insight! Did both the walking tour and the National Monument. Highly recommend both. Thank you Leo!

We loved the museum and the tour by Leo was a brilliant introduction to the Pilgrims. We had lots of questions and he was very knowledgeable.

We did the non- walking tour - a fun “presentation “ by a very animated guy in period apparel. A child may enjoy that more than walking.
