It houses rotating exhibits about early-American agriculture, industry, trade, and Jenney's life. Visitors can learn even more about American history by taking one of the tours that Leo Martin, an enthusiastic local historian, runs from the museum.

  • What a refreshing tour. No pretext just the facts about the great history of the pilgrims. Could not recommend enough. Leo and his wife Nancy are amazing people and love what they do.
  • Leo is a great tour guide. Went on a walking tour today and now enjoying the Economic tour. Very informative!
  • Leo is just the absolute best and his wife Nancy is wonderful too. Great history tour of a great town with a great story!
  • We wanted to join our voice to the chorus of amazing reviews for the Jenny Interpretive Center. Leo and Nancy Martin are the kindest couple who went above and beyond to educate and create a memorable experience for our family. We reached out to Nancy on a day that Leo was not scheduled to give tours, but they created one for us to accommodate our last minute request. We have five young children and Leo met them at their level and gave them a fun and educational tour of Plymouth. As adults, the tour enlarged our perspective and understanding of all the amazing things that happened when the first pilgrims arrived on American shores. My boys loved every minute of the tour and still talk about this experience a month after our visit. Its not easy to find family friendly educational and personalized experiences like this these days, so we sure appreciated our experience with the Martins. Thank you both and to those thinking of going on a tour with Leo - go! We hope to return again soon.
  • Awesome museum and tour. Learn what really motivated the Pilgrims.
