History Museum Museum
Interact with an authentic environment and historical interpreters of Pilgrims at Plimoth Plantation, a living museum based and located on the first Plymouth colony. English Colonists originally established the settlement in the 17th century, and now the same grounds host this multifaceted museum. Witness everyday life in the 1627 English Village section of the museum, where the "townspeople" dress, speak, and behave like 17th-century Pilgrims. You also can explore a replica of the Mayflower II, watch a film at the museum's cinema, see craftsmen at work, and learn about Native American history in the region at the Wampanoag Homesite.

  • We did the history tour of Plymouth. The recreated village was excellent. My wife was able to converse with 4 of her Pilgrim ancestors. The other 2 had the day off.!! She really enjoyed the whole thing and found it all very informative. I had come here years ago on a school outing and was not sure what they would have. The next day we had Thanksgiving Dinner and that weekend ate the Harvest Meal at PP. Excellent again. We went aboard the Mayflower also. They have a package deal on this grouping. We also did the Pilgrim Hall and Mayflower descendants Library. All and all it was great fun. The ancestral link and the fact we live on a farm added lots of interest. I would spend every Thanksgiving at P P if I could swing it. The attractions are not cheap ,but we wont get back for a long time I think it is money well spent.
  • IT WAS INCREDIBLE!!! I really felt as though I had traveled back in time! The actors all have fun stories that sound so real. They all interact with each other. There some chicken walking around, some cows in a field. Just amazing!
  • Wonderful historical experience. I would recommend it, to people of all ages, although there is quite a bit of walking on uneven and even hilly terrain. The staff, both in character and out, are as knowledgeable and professional as you can get. Well worth the cost of admission and a great step back in time!
  • This is a really great place to visit. The pilgrim colony and Native American homesite were authentically recreated and the actors were so good it truly felt as though I had travelled back in time. Our guide Philip was especially awesome!
  • Great place to stop for a couple hours and explore apart of our history. Tickets were almost $30 per person but a neat place!
