The Mayflower replica was stunning. It's a must-see if you're in the area. Plymouth looks like a wonderful place to spend some time in. We are planning a future trip to stay there a few days - it was so quaint. The crew was so knowledgeable and placed you back in 1620 when the Mayflower crossed the Atlantic from England.... More

The role players on the Mayflower II present their personal story about the trip to America. This is a fascinating way to see and experience history. I personally find the story incredible how these people made it to American and survived all of the hardships. This is a must see attraction in Plymouth and worth a visit.

The Mayflower II is well presented and has a much-appreciated shaded waiting area. On the day we were there, there was no line and it was mid-week in August, end of the afternoon. We enjoyed one of the guide's ability to answer questions and learned a few things as we are not what you'd call the ultimate Pilgrim historians. The... More

Boarding and walking through the Mayflower II was a great way to understand just how unpleasant a trans-Atlantic crossing would have been for 100+ people on ship this size. Aside from the size of the living areas, I found it interesting to see how the ship was steered. No spoiler here--you'll find out on your visit--but there was no steering... More

Imagine being able to hear the captain of the Mayflower tell his story of how he came to command this ship and his experiences of those who sailed with him. Visit his quarters on the Mayflower II in the Plymouth Harbor and he will regale you with tales and opinions. Go below deck and learn how the 102 pilgrims, including... More

Represents how the voyagers actually travelled to America. Rough conditions. Amazing they were able to maintain their strength, find land and establish the Colony.

The replica and staff dressed for the period was neat. Taking our time and interacting with the staff and reading the information throughout took us no more than thirty minutes. I'm not convinced this was worth the price of admission for a family of five, but it was interesting. Staff did a nice job on the ship.

Having visited a number of other old ships, I was surprised by the deck heights, they seem far too high, I mentioned this to one of the non costumed guides and he replied that they were probably a foot too high for the era, seems strange that this would be the case. The non costumed guides were very knowledgeable and... More
