Regular tours are conducted here and there is a special visitors center that gives you in-depth details on the facility and the work conducted. To know more, check the website.

Heritage Museums & Gardens

These former Plantations are a complex of museums devoted to early American life. The art museum contains antique toys and the largest collection of Currier and Ives lithographs in the country. A 1912 carousel is a favorite with children. A replica of a Shaker roundhouse contains antique cars. Antique firearms and uniforms are on display in the Military Museum. Charles Dexter, the original owner, spent years here planting and perfecting varieties of rhododendrons. Please note the museum and gardens are open seasonally.

Polly Hill Arboretum

Polly Hill started growing trees and plants from seed on the family farm more than 40 years ago, and they all grew to become the island's premier natural showcase. Hill has developed numerous plants now grown around the world; including the famous North Tilsbury Azalea. At the same time she expanded the range of plants on Martha's Vineyard. The requested donation for adults is quite a reasonable amount and children 12 and under may enter for free. Lectures are held throughout the season and tour arrangements may be made in advance.

Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary

Six miles of hiking trails meander through this 350-acre nature preserve. The well-marked trails lead visitors through open fields, woods, marshlands and beaches. Tree swallows, wood ducks, barn owls and osprey as well as other wildlife can be seen while walking around this wild and beautiful landscape. Special programs are held throughout the year, including Sea Ducks at Squibnocket in March and a large plant sale in May.

Jabez Howland House

A classic 17th-century timber-frame house, the Jabez Howland House is located on 33 Sandwich Street in Plymouth, Massachusetts. This historic house also has the unique distinction of being the only heritage property in the whole of Plymouth where Pilgrims once resided. Featuring a porch, massive hall and a hall chamber, this house served as the living quarters of John Howland and his family. This historic residence was turned into a museum post-1912 when extensive revamping and restructuring work was carried out on the house with the aim to restore its original look.

Plymouth Rock

An English ship, Mayflower, brought with it over 100 pilgrims who landed on the harbor of Plymouth and discovered their newfound freedom in the year 1620. The Plymouth Rock is supposedly the exact spot of the landing of the pilgrims and today a major portion of it is sheltered under a grand canopy made of granite. Located within the Pilgrim Memorial State Park, the rock is one of the major attractions for tourists visiting Massachusetts and with guided tours, people get to learn about the English pilgrims and their heritage.
