Plimoth Plantation, Plymouth

4.2
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.

  • Who knew that the Plimoth Plantation had such beautiful locations for weddings? The family wedding we attended was outside, and the wedding party stood in front of a pond just as the sun was setting. The catered buffet was indoors with elegant selections and lots of room for dancing. The next day we arrived at the Plantation for a farewell brunch. Very good location for weddings. Three locations to choose from.
  • If I had a word to describe it...Underwhelming. For the steep price of 30$ per person not worth the experience. The few individuals we did encounter were very knowledgeable and stayed in character but some of he individuals did not interact at all or even seemed to avoid us. Quite a bit of construction happening made this experience inauthentic, we were only told of “some minor” construction happening only after we purchased our ticket. We were not informed of this prior to which would allow us to make a decision whether or not to proceed. I’m not sure why this was highly rated but maybe we just went at a bad time, since they are not “in season” and just happen to catch everyone on a bad day. The one thing that was the saving grace of the experience was the fresh bread we purchased.. it was a cranberry pecan bread and fresh cookies!! Delicious. The gentleman working the counter was very nice as well. Everything else was mediocre at best.
  • Took a detour to visit this place. I’ve heard so many good things about it and I was not disappointed! I loved the attention to detail and all of the great information provided by the actors. I’m also a HUGE fan of the Thanksgiving-type meal they offered in their cafeteria! Man alive, just looking at the photo of it is making my mouth water!
  • As awesome and educational and inspiring as it was since I was a kid. Can't wait to go back. Just love that the plantation folk speak in period and enjoy trying to get them to break from their vernacular
  • This is a great place to spend an afternoon! Period actors are spot-on and never go out of character in discussions. Informative AND entertaining. I was there for the 1627 Harvest Feast, for the second year in a row. Awesome food, again entertained and informed by the actors hosting the event. Let the buyer beware: the arrangements can vary from one year to the next! This year was hugely expanded to accommodate something like 190 guests. Instead of the round tables of last year, that made for easy conversations, dinner was served at long trench tables. And where you could find your own table last year, this year the plan was to seat people alphabetically by reservation -- a disaster for a group that had made independent reservations!! Fortunately they were able to accommodate us, and the effects, however impatiently delivered, were much appreciated. Word to the wise: appoint a single spokesperson from your group to communicate with the coordinating staff. Too many people talking without understanding can lead to frustrating communication errors. Overall, the experience is delightful, and I highly recommend it!
