Plimoth Plantation, Plymouth

4.1
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. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Plymouth holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Plimoth Plantation and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Fun place to bring the kids to learn! Nice walking trails with people dressed in costumes of the time. Love this place and then go downtown after for ice cream and waking on the rocks by the ocean (and THE ROCK of course)
  • A living museum. The tour was SO interesting especially talking to the pilgrims and Native Americans. Never out of character. Lots of demonstrations and a look back into how they managed to make a life here. The cafĂ© offered great choices of food, and loved the gift shops.
  • The star attraction in Plymouth. Fun and entertaining. I would recommend for adults and children over 8+. The younger children may not benefit from the museum and interaction with the characters. It is not a theme park, obviously. The place has come a LONG way since 2012. I went there as a teenager on a filed trip for American Studies. Still great after all these years!
  • Plimoth plantation has two cinemas. They show an excellent array of films as well as great popcorn. A very cosy venue.
  • Visited the week before thanksgiving during a cold snap. The trail was easy enough for our hiking stroller for the kids to take a break from the cold in. The staff was energetic and made it a great experience despite the fact that they were probably freezing! Everyone took time to explain what they were doing. I know it is their job, but they seemed to genuinely enjoy teaching and sharing. We had a 3 and 5 year old with us, and they adjusted their lessons to help the little ones stay engaged and understand. We learned a lot and are eager to come back as the kids get older!
