The Mayflower Pilgrim Museum tells the story of ordinary people who did an extraordinary thing that changed the world.



From the sleepy villages around North Nottinghamshire the Pilgrims risked their lives to stand up for freedom of the people against State and Church. They created the 'Separatist' movement leading the infamous 'Mayflower' journey to the birth of Modern Day America, their actions resulting in the American Constitution, free elections, American Thanksgiving and the English Civil War.


The Mayflower Pilgrims also changed the course of religious history.


What the Pilgrim Fathers did ultimately resulted in the British Legal System, human rights, the 'American dream' and freedom for all.

Find out about one of the most moving stories in history and why it happened in North Nottinghamshire.
