Well worth a visit

We found the guides onboard to be very knowledgeable and friendly, particularly those "in character". This is a fascinating piece of history and well worth a visit.

Just back from dry dock the Mayflower II is worth the quick visit to understand just how difficult a journey to the New World and what a leap of faith it must have been for the early settlers.

The Mayflower had just returned from being repaired and as such was not open for tours yet when I visited this site. It did, however, impress me with the relative small size to transport 100 people for some 60 days. What a journey that must have been! Since Plymouth is a fairly small town, it is close to many other... More

This is a well researched replica of the vessel that brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth in 1620. It was built in England and arrived in Plymouth in 1957. The vessel is staffed by role-playing actors that are recreating the year 1620. These historians have extensive knowledge of the 1620 voyage, are dressed in period clothing, and have the British accents... More

Enjoyed the access, the opportunity to see the vessel and wonder what a true voyage would have been like on such a small vessel!

Fabulous hands-on experience for the kids. Staff was wonderful--both those in character and those who weren't. Our kids got to close the windows, lower the flag, and asked so many questions. We really enjoyed it!

It was a good live history lesson to see the accommodations that the Pilgrims came in. Having live actors playing some of the people helps history come alive. The combination of Plymouth Rock, The Mayflower II, and Plimouth Planation makes a good day of reviewing history in an interesting manner. Good for families with grade school children.
