Chairman's Society


The Chairman's Society recognizes those individuals who generously demonstrate their leadership support and shared commitment to furthering the mission of Plimoth Plantation.

Members of the Chairman's Society provide the essential resources that enable Plimoth Plantation to offer meaningful personal encounters with history by enlivening and illuminating the story of America's earliest beginnings.  The Museum's reproduction ship, Mayflower II, the Plimoth Grist Mill, Wampanoag Homesite and Pilgrim Village provide multiple perspectives that bring to life the history, customs and world of the 17th century.

By joining the illustrious Chairman's Society, you will allow countless visitors of all ages to find inspiration in the lives and history of the Pilgrims and Indigenous People.


In appreciation of your generosity as a member of the Chairman's Society, you will receive a variety of special benefits designed to add to your Plimoth Plantation experience.  While each level of support brings additional enhancements, complimentary annual membership - providing unlimited admission to the Museum for a full year - is offered to all Chairman's Society members.
