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

Visited this years ago with wife and returned this time on a road trip with grandson. Not as impressive as years ago. If it were not part of the combination ticket I might have passed this up. There were 3 costumed guides on board but they seemed uninterested in explaining things. Example: the guide inside the streer house: asked her... More

The guides dressed in period gear do not break character and really provide a glimpse into the daily life of the period and onboard. The ship is well maintained. I was interested in this sightseeing stop but amazed at how much I enjoyed it. A must see stop!

What a neat experience to learn about some history! The ship is dark and kind of smelly but that how it is supposed to be. The actors portray roles from the original sailing and were very educational. We had our 2 young children and they loved it. It was a great way to help them learn about what life was... More

This replica of the Mayflower is a great experience. I can't imagine having to travel across an ocean in a ship like this. We owe the pilgrims a debt for what they were willing to do. We loved visiting the ship and seeing what the ship would have looked like. It was a worthwhile visit. Admission was covered by the... More

A TINY, dark, cramped, uncomfortable ship meant to carry only freight....seen on a sunny day in July.... WHAT must this have been like in a cool rainy September and a frigid December, let alone for an ocean crossing? It has to be seen to be believed.

Even on one of the most unbearable humid days this is one of the best attractions ever. The costumed characters are always fantastic.

This ship is such a great object to have for us to climb on and enjoy. I don't know where they put 130 people on a 66-day voyage. Don't miss this or Plymouth Rock nearby.

Great experience for everyone to see what our ancestors did to make this life possible. Develop a new appreciation for what they went through when you see the conditions they lived in.
