The Mayflower Museum
Welcome to the Mayflower Museum
This is a journey through our building and through time. There are four floors and four centuries to explore. This is a shared history and we look forward to sharing it more widely.
The exhibition explores the Mayflower story in new ways. It begins with Wampanoag history and culture thanks to an on-going partnership with members of the Native American tribal nation. Their insights are shared alongside the stories of earlier English voyages to America, which shaped histories and legacies on both sides of the Atlantic. The exhibition considers the impact of English colonisation on indigenous communities – then and now. It also reflects on commemorations through time, and England’s changing, and enduring, relationship with America.
' A place that often tells the American origin story better than we tell it ourselves'
