Join the Virtual Mayflower EventTo commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower's historic journey to America, Leiden in Holland – where the Pilgrims started their famous voyage – will be launching the opening ceremonies for its 400th-anniversary commemorations on Saturday, May 16th, 2020.
Through Facebook, you can participate in a unique virtual tour of the city, incorporating all the key landmarks and stories around Pilgrim life in Leiden. The tour will start at 4 pm (3 pm UK and 10 am EST in the US). Over the next four hours, viewers will have the chance to experience this beautiful city using computer-animated reproductions to bring to life existing buildings and landmarks as they would have looked 400 years ago when the separatists lived in the Netherlands prior to leaving for a new life.
This guided tour will be hosted by an English speaking expert from the city and will be accompanied by the chance to ask live questions about the different historical landmarks you see during the event and learn detailed information about the "Leiden Pilgrims."
While staying home and safe, enjoy the Opening Ceremonies LIVE!
The Mayflower Society is delighted to host this special commemorative event, right from our Facebook page!
