Plymouth England Museums

A printed version of a facsimile of the 1621 document that gave the Pilgrims of England permission to colonize Plymouth, Massachusetts, was unveiled Thursday by the Plymouth English Museum and Library (PEM) and the Massachusetts Historical Society (MHS). The facsimile is the original copy of the "Declaration of Plymouth" - a document of 16 21 that gave permission to the English pilgrim colonists - until the restoration of the freshly restored late 19th century parchment is complete and further restoration work is due to take place at the Pembroke Library.

The carved figurehead, which is to decorate the bow of a 19th century naval warship, will be on its way to the Plymouth English Museum and Library in the next few months. Inside and outside it is guarded by the Pembroke Library, where Box will soon be based. Box, managed by Plymouth City Council, is an important part of the major redevelopment programme that will lead to a new home for the museum and library on the former site of an old shipyard in Plymouth city centre.

Plymouth Citybus provides a service, and from there you can take the Cremyl ferry back to Plymouth or walk about 3-4 miles. You can also take a bus to Bristol, although it's a two-hour train ride from Plymouth.

You can also visit the 17th century English Village to admire the small agricultural and maritime community built by pilgrims on the seafront of Plymouth Harbour. Try the Cremyll ferry that will take you back to Plymouth (timetable at the tourist office). The boat departs from the Barbican in Plymouth and takes you to Cawsand, a small village in Cornwall. It's quite common for a 10-minute drive, so try the boat from Barbicans to Plymouth.

The building was designed by Messrs Thornely and Rooke from Plymouth and construction on the site began on 9 December 1907 by Thomas Dyer, the founder of Plymouth Limited, and his wife. Experience the milling process for yourself when you visit the Mill Museum, a mill museum in Plymouth.

Perched on a hook, this information centre features interactive hands - visitors can sail the Mayflower, explore the Elizabethan road and stand on the edge of Plymouth Sound. Located on the roof of the Plymouth Dome, the Information Centre provides information about Plymouth and its history, as well as a range of interactive hand-in-hand displays where you could have sailed aboard the Mayflower, Elizabethans Street and the Stand on The Hoes, an information centre offering interactive hands - On displays where visitors could stand on Mayflorentine, Elizabethans Street or at the end of the main museum hall, you can also visit the historic buildings and monuments of Plymouth.

Mayflower II, built in Devon, England, was the 17th century ship, the Mayflower, that transported pilgrims to the New World. Since arriving in Plymouth as a gift from England in 1957, this beloved ship has been an important tourist attraction and educational tool. Other exhibitions include the ship that sailed from Plymouth to America in 1620, and in addition to visiting the Mayflower Steps, there are a number of interactive hands - on displays and interactive hand-in-hand displays.

The visit to the museum will tell visitors about the pilgrims, the reasons why they left England and the perilous journey they took to the United States. The museum offers walking tours, one of which is offered by the guided Devon and Cornwall tour. Organised walks in Plymouth itself include a guided Devon & Cornwall Tours, which will give a deeper insight into the Mayflower's history and history, including one about the story of the young pilgrim John Howland who was washed overboard and rescued.

It was in 1620 that the Pilgrim Fathers left Plymouth to escape religious persecution in the New World, and eventually founded the Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts. The Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown, Massachusetts, was built to commemorate the arrival of the Mayflower and its arrival in New England, but the figurehead is said to be more than just a wooden sculpture. A large gallery leads through the "Pilgrim Story," as told by the Governor of the colony of Plymouth, William Bradford.

If you're in the Smeaton Tower, be sure to check out the rest of the spacious Plymouth Hoe Park. The boat trip begins at the original location, which is believed to have stood where Admiral McBride's public house is today. In this area you can also visit the Mayflower II, the ship on which the pilgrims sailed to Plymouth in 1620, but which was no longer in Plymouth due to restoration work and has since returned to the port of Plymouth.

Elsewhere in the park, a bumbling man stands - on - a bench, exactly where the Fab Four sat and took their famous photos during their 1963 visit to Plymouth. Visit the wonderful art galleries, including the Plymouth Art Gallery and the Plymouth Museum of Natural History, to name a few.
