More Than a Museum

In the oldest town in New England, Plimoth Patuxet is a vibrant cultural hub and resource. Discovering the past helps us to better understand our world. Here you may explore the stories of the Wampanoag and English people who met along these historic shores of change. Their voices have much to teach, and the legacy of their lessons continues today.
