(4.1/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • My husband and I were a bit curious as to whether this would be a "cheesy" tourist type trap, but it really isn't. Though the buildings aren't on the actual site (since the modern day town grew up out...  more »

  • Loved my first visit to Plimoth Plantation. The grounds are very pleasant to walk through, and the people working there are very knowledgeable. It's nice being able to join in a conversation others are having with them sometimes, if you're more shy about approaching people, but they also try to strike up conversation with you to get things going. I thought their recommendation of 2 hours to do/see everything was good. We did not eat in the cafe so can't comment on the food. I would love to come back and see more demos in the craft center. We met the beekeeper who was very friendly and great to talk to-- wish they sold the natural soap as well as the candles she makes in the gift shop!
  • We just visited this two weeks ago on Canadian Thanksgiving to experience the so called origin of Thanksgiving place and the English settlers/pilgrims life in 17th century. The admission prices were a bit pricy and the Wampanoag native community part should have been more developed or set-up and better taken care of. It was quite enlightening for the kids to learn the dark side of English settlers' brutality with the Native Americans through conversations with the native community in the plantation.
  • Excellent place to visit to learn about early American history. The living museum is thoughtful, insightful, and meaningful. There is no other place quite like it. Be sure to take your time and talk to the actors in the Pilgrim village and also the Wampanoag people - this will really teach you about early life in America.
  • They had a great model Indian village with real fires burning and a model Plymouth village. The staff both in character and out was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. Well worth the price.
  • A little crowded with school kids but thats ok cause the feeling of the "Pilgrims" or Separatists is so strong there! The reenactors were great doing their roles! Got to walk into my 10th grandfather's house!
