Plimoth Plantation, Plymouth
Categories: History Museums, Museums
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.

A very enjoyable and interesting time spent at the Plantation meeting the local people and engaging in conversation about the trials and tribulations of the settlers.
We really enjoyed our time here. They've done a nice job of recreating what life must have been like and we really enjoyed conversing with the characters. They were incredibly knowledgeable and played... read more »
I live in the area but have not visited the Plantation for a long time. This time I took my 7 year old grandson. It provides an interesting look at how the Pilgrims and Native Americans lived in those... read more »
Terrific interpretation of English and Wampanoag life in the 1620s. Much is geared to kids grade 3-8, but I learn a lot as an adult when I go. Special events are intriguing, and a family visit is a welcome curative to the woeful misinterpretations most Americans derive from our school years
Even if you truly loved what this "museum" is about, the amount of information to gather and fun to be had is so minuscule and so sparse and the prices are so high that there is no reason to visit. The pilgrims are very rude, the natives were rude and there was only one longhouse. Everything was outrageously expensive. It was $160 for four adults, not including the Mayflower and Plimouth rock tickets.
Very nice replica of an early village. Similar in style to Sturbridge Village, but an earlier version and much more condensed. The kids especially liked the actors/actresses that were very cordial.
I was pretty disappointed in the atmosphere here, it seems like all the actors were burned out and would not give you any information unless you asked. It was more awkward than anything. You would also think there would be more people in a village other than enough to fill half the houses that look like there 30 years old (history they should be about a tenth that age). They need to rework it so that the actors have a story to tell that is informative.
A wonderful way to spend your day. The portrayers are inspiring...take the time to chat with them and you will learn of life in the colony in an atypical way. Great value, definitely worth the $ 😊!
