Our Mayflower Pilgrims Museum tells the story of ordinary folk, who did an extraordinary thing that changed the world.


From the sleepy villages around North Nottinghamshire, they stood up for freedom of people against State and Church, and started a movement that they lead for over 40years,  that changed the world. In the process they created the 'Separatists', fuelled the English 'Civil War', lead a voyage aboard the 'Mayflower' and founded Modern Day America.


What the Pilgrim Fathers did ultimately resulted in the British Legal System, human rights, the American Constitution and American Thanksgiving.



Find out about the incredible events that lead to one of the most moving stories in history and why it happened in North Nottinghamshire.

Learn about religion in the middle ages, American thanksgiving, and freedom of the individual, what it was like to be a Pilgrim and sail aboard the Mayflower. 

Visit the shop for souvenirs, books, pilgrim art and much more.

Activities for children, families are welcome.


Open Monday - Saturday, 10am - 4pm. (Tuesday until 1pm)
