The scallop shell is a traditional symbol of pilgrimage, representing a physical and spiritual journey. On May 4th-6th, Pilgrim Hall Museum becomes the setting for visitors to embark on a pilgrimage into Plymouth history through the lens of art. Meet with docents at “scallop stations” placed throughout the museum galleries to learn unexpected insights into historical artworks depicting the Pilgrim story. At each stop, collect a paper growth ring representing your unfolding journey. Not all will follow the same route, but all trails will lead to a culminating activity where visitors will be able to put their rings together to form a completed shell to write their reflections on pilgrimage. This event is free with museum admission.
