The replica and staff dressed for the period was neat. Taking our time and interacting with the staff and reading the information throughout took us no more than thirty minutes. I'm not convinced this was worth the price of admission for a family of five, but it was interesting. Staff did a nice job on the ship.

Having visited a number of other old ships, I was surprised by the deck heights, they seem far too high, I mentioned this to one of the non costumed guides and he replied that they were probably a foot too high for the era, seems strange that this would be the case. The non costumed guides were very knowledgeable and... More

I found this replica very interesting and informative. It educated me on what life would have been like for the pilgrims. I thought it was great how they had people dressed up as the pilgrims/ the captain and they even spoke in old English. I'd recommend paying a visit if you are in area as you will learn a lot... More

This is a well maintained attraction, however the $10 per person entry fee is a little too expensive for what it is. If however you are happy with the price, you will find it an interesting 20 - 30 minute attraction

The Mayflower II is a vessel built to re-create the original Mayflower; it was built and sailed from England to Massachusetts in the 1950s, and now is docked in Plymouth, although it remains a true seaworthy vessel occasionally brought out to sail. We visited on a Friday when an anonymous donor had paid to have the exhibit open free of... More

A very, very good experience. We could understand how it was, from sleeping to cooking. What I liked most: The places to sleep, the place to cook, the figurants explaining and answering questions, What I didn't like; nothing

This is a replica of the Mayflower that you can explore. Actors playing Pilgrims and crew members from the time are staged at various places on the Mayflower. You can ask the actors questions about their experiences during the voyage and after its arrival. Its a great way to fully understand the Pilgrims and what they went through. My children... More

Authentically re-creation of the Mayflower as best as could be determined from the written accounts. The docents on board have taken on the persona of people who sailed on the vessel. They stay in character and speak "old English". Very interesting and a perfect way to start your journey to Plimoth Plantation,

I enjoyed visiting the Mayflower. You can walk through the ship & touch everything there! Staff interacted & answered questions...in character true to that era. Very cool!

The ship is amazing. You can see what it was like for these poor people crossing the ocean four hundred years ago. There was a "modern" guide who was extremely interesting and a costumed guide to whom we could have listed all day. We talked and listened to him for half an hour before I had to pull my family...
