Tough crossing

A really worthwhile view of tough life on one of the cork-like vessels which braved wild oceans in search of freedom. If you didn't die of sea-sickness, scurvy, keel-hauling or... read more

I really loved the Mayflower visit as well as the Plimouth Plantation. Same role-playing and excellent information and re-creation of the story.

A really worthwhile view of tough life on one of the cork-like vessels which braved wild oceans in search of freedom. If you didn't die of sea-sickness, scurvy, keel-hauling or the like then I guess it was an exhilarating way to travel. There are ships bigger than this owned by Russian oligarchs moored in the harbour in Monaco! Authentic players... More

Kids love exploring the ship. If there happens to be a pilgrim onboard, ask questions. They are in character and will answer from a historical perspective. It is interesting to see what the conditions were really like for the crossing and to see in person how small the ship is. It is nearby the Plymouth Rock, so swing by to... More

The most impressive thing is realizing how small this "ship" really is. A nice walk through time and definitely a reality check on what these brave people went through to make it across the ocean.

They have tour guides dressed in authentic Pilgrim clothing. They give interesting facts about life on the ship and the voyage undertaken by the Pilgrims in 1620. You have the option to buy a ticket just for the Mayflower, or to buy a combo ticket that also give you admission to the Plimouth Plantation.

I took my daughter and aged parents aboard the Mayflower replica. It was certainly worth seeing. My only comment is that the actors should proactively engage more with the tourists rather than waiting to be asked questions about the period.

Nice little addition to Plimoth Plantation. This was not too time consuming and the family enjoyed seeing what conditions would have been like during the crossing. Staff here consist both of "in character" and normal support staff. You can also take a quick walk from here to First Rock. Definitely worth a visit.

Definitely worth the small price of admission. I was amazed by how small this was and how difficult it must have been for the early travelers. The ship is not the same one, but is a replica.

We came to the Mayflower II right when it opened which was lucky for us because it was completely empty. This gave the kids a chance to talk with both the re-enactors and the modern day guides. Both types of interpreters were fabulous. Unfortunately ten minutes in a huge school tour arrived and made it nearly impossible to examine things... More
