Visitor Guide

Four hundred years ago, the winds of change filled Mayflower’s sails and brought her passengers here to the Indigenous homeland on the shores of Patuxet. Two cultures met and their complex, interwoven history shaped the United States.

Today, the winds of change continue to blow. It is a theme that we’ve incorporated into the Museum’s new visual identity, which represents these figurative winds, as well as the rolling hills of Patuxet and Plymouth, and the waves of the rich waterways that sustained these two communities.
