I can't imagine what it must have been like to sail across the ocean in such a small ship! Living history at its best!

The area that the Mayflower II is docked is a nice location. There are a number of wall displays as you enter the area that give a brief history and statistics about the Mayflower II. You can walk about on and inside the small vessel at your leisure and take pictures. Parking is where ever you can find it on... More

This is a great way to walk back into history! The actors who are on board this ship are very knowledgeable, friendly, and captivating. No American should visit this area without a trip to the Mayflower II.

To think that many people lived on the boat for the trip here and the first winter. The tour guides on the boat were informative. Those pilgrims were really courageous.

It makes history more relevant when you can walk the deck of such a small ship and wonder how those people made it of Plymouth harbour, let alone across the Atlantic Ocean! Good chance to learn American history.

Kids were excited to see the Plymouth Rock and go aboard the mayflower. Wow it is not cheap by any means. A little pricey for a family adventure

There's not a whole lot to see here, but really, that's the most interesting thing to take away from here: There were 102 people, for months, cooped up all on this little ship? It really makes you think about how brave, or crazy, or both, the Pilgrims must've been. As for the ship itself, while it didn't take long to... More

This attraction is good for kids. Nice to see the size of the ship and put a visual to what is learned in school. We went towards the end of the day, and it seemed as if most staff were rushed to leave. All in all, we spent about 40 minutes here and just under $40 for the tickets.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Mayflower II. I was spellbound by the staff member on the half-deck explaining not only many aspects about the boat but also so much about the lives of the Mayflower's passengers in Europe and what motivated them to make the journey. In town, we had no problem finding parking nearby on the main... More

We visited the Mayflower II alongs with Plimouth Plantation. If you look around locally you can find a coupon for a $7 discount when you buy the 'Heritage Pass' which also includes admission to the Grist Mill. We didn't have time to visit the Grist Mill, but it was still $1 cheaper with the discount ticket we found to buy... More
