Our next stop was to the Pilgrim Hall Museum. Sadly we weren't allowed to take any photos inside. I didn't think to ask if I could take some without a flash until long after I arrived home. I didn't even take any outside the museum. But I did snag this photo off their website:
This is a great and very inexpensive museum right in the center of downtown. It houses many real artifacts (as in not reproductions of things). What I really liked out this museum was how they worked to make it child-friendly.
When we arrived we were greeted by a sweet older woman at the front desk. After paying admission (for my boys & I to get in, it was less than I paid just for me to go to Plimouth!), each boy was handed a clipboard, pencil, and a Scavenger Hunt to complete. If they brought back the clipboard, they would get a prize (it was a free postcard). This helped keep them engaged - even when they didn't want to do it!
In the basement there were even more artifacts along with a short 15 minute video about the history of the Pilgrims and Native People.
All-in-all this was a great place to check out - especially after having been at Plimouth Plantation the day before.
