Definitely worth a visit if you plan to stay in the Plymouth area. Also very convenient if you are traveling to the Cape from Boston. The museum does a great job of telling the story of the pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians.

I really enjoyed the rich history and my daughter said she loved all of it. Which is a first and the staff was nice and informative.

Plymouth Plantation is a great attraction for locals, as well as tourists. It covers much of the Traditional History of the Original Colonists, and their struggles here in New England, as well as their interaction with the Wampanoag Indians, who existed here prior. You'll notice that all of the "characters" in individual buildings, and thru out the plantation, maintain theatrical... More

The Plimoth Plantation was very entertaining and educational. The staff both Native Americans and pilgrims have an amazing amount of knowledge. There were some small children asking questions and they were very patient. We bought the package ticket for the Mayflower, Plantation, and Mill. They offer discounts for several groups including teachers and AAA so be sure to ask if... More

Rain could have marred our visit, but we had slickers and umbrellas. The native American enclosures were staffed by knowledgeble and friendly Indians. The small enclave that was modeled after a 17th century European habitated huts, was very realistic, with staff in costume and speaking with Dutch accents, etc. Very educational. There were several buildings with lots of displays, hands... More

We toured the Plantation on our own and were able to talk to the people there who explained much to us about the history. It was really neat and I feel that I learned a lot of history that is not included in history books.

This was a great place to visit and get a history lesson in person. It was great to be on a replica ship Mayflower II and for a moment get to experience what life must have been like more than 200 years ago. This is a very important place and the beginning of America. You get to see how first... More

This attraction is very well presented over quite a large area but really needs to be visited in dry weather to be most enjoyable since it is all outdoors. The American Indian presentation was very informative as was the way that people were in character in the pioneer village. My only gripe was the cafeteria which did not have as... More

We had an interesting day here but were doubtful about some aspects. The cafe was poor and the craft workshops seemed limited in scope. The "17th century" meeting house turned out to be a reproduction of a hunting lodge belonging to Henry VIII. That's like building a replica of my home and using Bill Gates' house as the pattern! It... More

My family and I enjoyed learning about the 17th century in this replica village. The Native Village was interesting too and we learned how they made canoes and other things. The pioneer village as well as the Native one have very knowledgeable staff, willing to answer your questions and are very good with the kids. It really feels like you... More
