Mission Statement

The mission of Pilgrim Hall Museum is to educate the public about the significance of the Pilgrim experience by interpreting and preserving an evolving collection.

Description

The Pilgrim Society owns and operates Pilgrim Hall Museum, a gallery museum in the center of historic Plymouth, Massachusetts. Through its exhibition of Pilgrim possessions and Native American artifacts, Pilgrim Hall tells the stories of America's founding and traditions in stirring detail. Among the treasures on display at Pilgrim Hall Museum are William Bradford's Bible, the cradle in which Susanna White rocked her son Peregrine, and the great chair of William Brewster. You'll see the skeleton of the 17th century vessel Sparrow-Hawk as well as the only portrait of a Pilgrim - Edward Winslow - actually painted from life. The possessions and artifacts of the Pilgrims tell the story of brave and determined men and women, and their attempts to build lives and homes for themselves and their children in a new world. In addition to permanent and changing exhibitions, presenting the continuing significance of the Pilgrim story through historic, artistic and social themes, the Pilgrim Society offers activities for children, educational programs, and a variety of special events.
