Life before cellphones? How about life before indoor plumbing! Treat your kids, and yourself to some living history where you can interact with folks who arrived on the Mayflower. This will be a day of of learning and appreciating the challenges of America's early immigrants. It is almost 400 years since their arrival and the Plantation is well worth the... More

It was cold and rainy and we were freezing the entire time we were there (our faults, not theirs) however we LOVED the Plimoth Plantation and have plans to return when we can really enjoy the time outside. You can see how life was for the Wampanoag Indians visiting a replica of their town. The Wampanoag Indians that work there... More

Everyone should try to visit the Plantation. It is a true representation of how the Pilgrims lived along side of the native Americans. The movie is an excellent introduction to the village where costumed interpreters speak as if they were in that era.. It is very well done.

For those visiting and even those that live near. Plimouth Plantation is an excellent full day of education, history sights, smells and sounds for all who are able to walk more than a short distance. Well worth the price of admission. You can bring your own food or purchase food there. Plan on spending many hours learning what it was... More

Located on a pond on a hill overlooking Plymouth Bay. Very expensive for what is offered. If you are a history lover, you might like it. However this is not the original site of the Pilgrims' settlement. Futhermore it is very hot at P.P. in the summer, bring lots of water to drink.

A wonderful travel back in time just minutes form downtown Plymouth. This museum offers a great movie to start you out on your journey. Next you get to walk through old Plimoth. The whole town is alive; from the homes where actual meals are prepared on open fires by "pilgrims" to the lifestock, the gardens,etc. You can engage the "inhabitants"... More

An absolute must see living working history museum. Just a few minutes south of the other major attractions in Plymouth and across the street from State beach.

We have been to the plantation several times in the past...the first time 32 years ago. The last time 3 or 4 years ago and we were drawn into the "drama". I love history and found this enthralling. It is a great learning experience for children as they participate in the action and learn with out realizing they are doing... More

What a great place. So interesting being able to talk to the people on the plantation and see how life was lived back then. Found out that most of what we learned in school was wrong. I was part of a coach tour, so we only had a morning to look round, but I think a whole day wouldn't be... More
