We went after our visit to the Plantation. Very enlightening to see how the pilgrims traveled. We talked with a couple of ladies in the hull and with a 'deck hand.' He was the best. Stories of the voyage, what people did (or didn't do) in the hold. He told some riddles to the children there. Made the visit for... More

Visit this ship and get a serious lesson on how brave our Pilgrim ancestors really were. Built to exact specifications this relic shows how the Pilgrims lived on board this small ship for the 65 day voyage from England. Don't miss this and it's great for the whole family. Enjoy.

I didn't go on this time, but I can tell you that the experience I had the last time was remembering the fact that "We the people of the United States are all derived from immigration."

There was plenty of historical information as you pass through to board the Mayflower II where you find actors dressed as Pilgrim Fathers relating their stories of the crossing and what their tasks were whilst sailing. Lots of interesting information.

Well I am, a UK one at that. Great to be able to go aboard this ship as I remember when she sailed from Plymouth, UK. The input from the staff in role on board was very good and certainly adds greatly to the experience.

Paid a short visit here and I have to say we were disappointed overall. The ship is obviously in need of some talc after so long in the water but that is to be expected and does bring it to life rather than being an over-sanitised plastic replica. There is some good information before you get onto the ship but... More

A charming and extraordinary interpreter deeply steeped in U.S. history made the visit to the Mayflower II a must-do. I was very disappointed in Plymouth Plantation, but the time at the sailing vessel was great!

It was interesting to walk around this reproduction. My children (10 and 4) quickly became bored so I was glad my husband and 13yo stayed behind. It's a little pricey for what you get.

Some of the actors on board were incredibly gifted. One, though, was horribly misinformed about the foundational motives of the "Pilgrims", making unsupported statements about their "true" motives in coming to the New World. His ignorance detracted from an otherwise pleasant and instructional experience on board the Mayflower II.
