Though not the actual ship, it is truly astounding to see the limited amount of space in which these people lived for almost 9 months! The interpreters are very talented and knowledgeable and do not break character regardless of the situation!

Even though the ship is essentially a replica of the ship that sailed to America in the early 1600s, it still brings home the idea that it must have been a harrowing trip for the inexperienced passengers. I can only imagine how frightening it must have been to spend weeks at sea in such a small vessel. I would see... More

Tour the replica of the Mayflower and picture yourself as one of the many pilgrims stepping foot on dry land after an arduous journey aboard ship.

After the Queen Mary and various cruise ships, we were surprised how small the Mayflower was. We didn't actually go on the ship for a tour. However, we encountered a man dressed in period costume that took a small group around the area. He explained the hardship experienced in the ship and in the settlement. I hope his narration sticks... More

This is a piece of history one must see while in the Plymouth area. Where this country was started from.

I can't imagine sailing on this size of a ship for months and months, it's great putting ourselves into our ancestors shoes. You have to see it to believe it, 102 plus crew on this vessel. It must have been difficult and very boring, below deck and with barnyard animals too boot. These folks really wanted this new life pretty... More

I am amazed that the original ship made it across the ocean. This replica is very impressive. I did not realize that the original ship was so small. You definitely gain a better appreciation of the people who made the trip and the hardships they endured.

What fun to experience these cramped and inhospitable confines that the pilgrim forefathers endured for 67 days. I am glad it was them and not me. The enactors really tell a great story. If you go, do engage them to tell more. Look for the docent in today's clothing the ask questions with today's current answers. They are all very... More
