In November 1620, the passengers and crew of the Mayflower reached the coast of Massachusetts and established a colony there. Among them were Puritan Reformists who had crossed the ocean to found a community in accordance with their aspirations, firmly rooted in Protestant and Calvinist values. This was a founding moment for what was to become the United States of America.
Experience first-hand this poignant event and the identity to which it gave rise through a multifaceted exhibition at the International Museum of the Reformation in Geneva.
Aboard the Mayflower is one piece of this exhibition. For 5 minutes, embark in the company of the first Reformed community in America on the emblematic boat that crossed the Atlantic in 1620 – an unforgettable virtual reality experience created by Artanim.
