Enjoyed the visit

My wife and I were on a Fall Foliage Tour and one of the stops was visiting the Mayflower. We did not go on the ship, but we saw it from the dock. I would recommend seeing it.

On something as historic as the Mayflower, it would be nice to actually learn something on board. We were caught in hordes of screaming schoolchildren. There was no signage posted to explain anything. The one docent didn't speak to us at all. A couple of women in costume sat talking to each and didn't do squat; might as well have... More

It was interesting to see the conditions the early settlers lived in on board, actually quite horrific by our present day standards, but the best bit was talking to the actors dressed up and playing the parts of the mariners. We had great fun getting the guy playing the armourer to answer our questions in his weird funny cockney/yorkshire/west country... More

Having last seen this boat about 60 years ago when it was moored in Sutton Harbour at the Barbican in Plymouth UK (as a money making tourist attraction), having sailed down from Brixham where it was built, it was good to see how well it has been looked after. The guides were informative and took time to answer questions.

We began our day at Plimoth Plantation where we purchased a combination ticket. After 5 wonderful hours at the Plantation, we drove the short distance to the Mayflower II. We got there around 3:30pm so if there had been school groups here, which I'm sure there were, they were gone at this time. We reveled in what was essentially an... More

Interesting but not worth the price to go aboard. See the photos posted here & save your money. The plantation is more interesting.

Recently visited Plymouth, primarily for the rock. Was surprised at how much they were charging to go aboard this replica. Didn't pay, just looked at the ship from the pier. Charge less, you might get more traffic.

Well worth a visit to see this replica of the original Mayflower. Mayflower II was built in the 1950's in the UK and then sailed to the USA...not quite following the path of the original in 1620. What a leap of faith for those original Pilgrims! Good for adults and children to explore and you can ask questions of the... More

Purchased separately or as part of the Plimoth Plantation visit, this is a really nice attraction to see. The costumed role players were good and responsive with good authentic costumes. The ship is well presented and affords a very interesting and informative way to understand the hardships of 17th Century travel. Most rooms recreate the facilities and give an insight... More

I love old ships and this was a lovely recreation of the Mayflower which was somewhat different than I pictured it. The below decks area was actually a little bigger than I had thought but I am sure was hell for the duration of the voyage between the temperature extremes , being essentially locked below decks (taped in), lack of...
