This place is great! I have been coming for years. We only live 1 hour away and I have come on school trips as well as family trips and every time I go I have a great time. The place is very clean and there is always something new to see. The kids ways have a great time learning about... More

We had visited Plimoth Plantation many years ago and were very impressed with the plantation itself and the interpreters. We visited again a few weeks again and I noticed that the palisades and some of the houses seemed really run down and in need or repair, which kind of left a bad taste in my mouth, for the price of...

I had been here about 20 years ago. It's fancier now. I had looked at their website for accessibility options and learned no strollers on the Mayflower II downtown and no wheelchairs at the plantation. We went first to the ship and found it fascinating. Knowledgeable docents answered questions in character. There was a steep gangplank and lots of ladders.... More

One of the most incredible locations i've ever been to. Friendly staff, beautiful location, excellent stop in Mass. The owner, Rob, was also very friendly and funny.

Very nice, but a bit on the pricey side. This would be great for kids who are in middle school. Young kids will have a hard time staying focused.

The Plimouth Plantation was a nice place to visit. They had people representing the Indian tribe who would answer your questions about life as an Indian, and they showed a typical home, shelters, and cooking area for the tribe. The plantation was a fantastic representation of how the settlement was built. Inside homes were people to explain the living conditions... More

This was a good way to introduce Native American and Pilgrim life to my 5 year old, but I was disappointed in the the lack of actors on hand the day we were there. There were 3 Native Americans there and a handful of English role players. The Native Americans were visible, talked to the crowd, and were very accommodating.... More

I took my wife, daughter and grand kids up to visit Plimoth Plantation. We bought the combination Mayflower/ Plantation ticket (didn't visit the grist mill). I was skeptical about visiting the boat but it turned out to be a very valuable part of the experience as it clearly communicated the cramped spaces and deprivation inherent in coming to the New...

The last time I visited Plimoth Plantation it was as a Massachusetts third grader. Twenty-five years later I can say it's still very much worth visiting. The first person interpretation in the English section of the site rivals what you'd find at places like Colonial Williamsburg. I will say though that you'll get more out of your visit if you...
