The Mayflower II was interesting to see. The "captain" was very interesting with alot of historical knowlege. It was amazing to learn how many people were on the ship in such a small space.

My companions really enjoyed themselves but I'm very sensitive to mold and mildew so couldn't stay on the ship for more than a couple minutes. Steer clear if you have similar issues.

It was interesting to visit this historical ship. We could imagine the awful journey it must have been for the passengers. It was fun that they had two historical actors on board talking to the visitors about what it was like. They did not break character.

It's smaller inside than it looks, but there's so much to see, many of it original. Men in dress & character tell stories of what life was like on this ship at sea.

Wow, maybe more than anything I've personally seen, the Mayflower II really connects you to history. It's incredible to see the accommodations (or lack thereof) the early Puritans would have had to endure for months while crossing the Atlantic. It seems almost unbelievable that over 100 people could fit in the cargo hold of a ship not much bigger than... More

A great experience to see history come to life. I will take my pictures back to the kids so they can see now even better what traveling from England was truly like. Worth the ticket and time. Don't miss this opportunity with the kids.

It is generally accepted that the original ship was sold off to pay debt. Mayflower II is a best attempt bases on similar ships of the period. Really the MOST amazing thing about the MF II is that the British built it with historically accurate tools, materials and methods and sailed it over here as a gift to the USA... More

Took our 13 year old daughter, and she was actually interested! You can go above and below board on the Mayflower II. There are people dressed for the period onboard and very informative. No tour; just wander around as you wish. It costs $12 to board, but there are combo tickets if you plan on visiting other attractions. Near by... More

It is not a large ship, but if you go on board you can well imagine how it would be to suffer through 60 some days, with over a 140 people including crew and animals. Below deck no less. It makes those long plane rides we complain about, look like a walk in the park.

Multi-layered history. First, the original history from 1620. Then, the recreated history from 1950s. There were autographs available from crew members of the 1957 voyage.
