We really wanted to like the place - my husband loves history so this should be great but it was not. The ticket agent was friendly and we got started off by visiting the Native American section. This was definitely the low point of the trip. No one so much as greeted us or engaged us in any of the... More

I was really excited to visit the Plantation and take a step back in time. We went with our two kids (4 & 1.5 yrs) on a Friday morning-early afternoon. Everything lived up to my expectations, except that it was overrun with school kids on field trips. Many of the role-players were preoccupied with the kids, or usually the kids... More

Though this attraction clearly has the financial backing of Patrons who like to maintain buildings and paths, it continues to prove disappointing. So much potential to bring history alive for our kids- but the staffers' general lack of interest and passion or even an ability to answer basic questions is a lost opportunity. General mumblings around loosely defined topics, little... More

Although I have visited before as a student on an elementary trip, it was as an adult I was able to appreciate the hard work and commitment the staff/volunteers/members/tribesmen do to keep history alive. Walking through the Wampanoag homesite, the wood fires and traditional clothing made you forget you were a 21st century being. The people of the English village... More

We enjoy visiting historic and cultural reenactment exhibits. While Plimouth is not the most exciting or the largest exhibit we've visited, it provided a lovely afternoon. The shop was expensive and filled with goods from a typical gift shop. The cafe provided good food, a bit expensive, but good tasting. We wished there was better access to outside seating for...

Nice history lessons mixed with a lovely walk through the woods. Also Baby goats! We enjoyed our time here. My husband said he is leaving me so he can help Mrs. Standish with her garden.

LOVED our day at Plimoth Plantation! If your family Loves history, this is a MUST do! The well versed role players were very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions from their "character's" perspective and always within the historically accurate time frame. They never break character and you feel as though you've gone back in time. The 17th-Century English Village... More

A great visit for any visitor. Brought friends and their family here from South Africa. The kids loved the Native American village. Kudos to the lady who explained about the cooking! The center provided a nice setting for a history lesson.

We loved Plimoth...so very well done. We stopped for our children, but my husband and I enjoyed it every bit as much as they did. Everyone on staff we encountered was incredibly helpful and patiently encouraged questions from our young children while asking thought-provoking questions in return. We had great conversations about what we saw for quite a while after... More

We enjoyed a trip to Plimoth Plantation a few days ago. We got there shortly after opening time (on a weekday) and there was hardly anyone there! The whole place is so tastefully done, and there are so many people there to answer your questions, etc. You go to the Wampanoag homesite first, where there are Native People descendants there...
