We wondered if we would be able to manage this but they have shuttle golf carts that one calls when needed. Very interesting and enjoyable experience.

Nothing to dislike, a must for anyone who wants to find out about the first settlers in plymouth. Well worth the time. Make sure you buy the 3 stop pass for here, The Mayflower and the grist mill

These are the things we liked about this historic site... The video which seemed to present a balanced approach to the relationship between the Native Americans and colonizing British. The Native American village is well done and the staff provided a lot of information contrary to what I thought I knew. The Pilgrims' village was much larger than I expected... More

We all think we know the story of the Pilgrims and the Native Americans at Plymouth. But at Plimouth Plantation you can see how they really lived and get the real story. The costumed role players portray actual residents of Plymouth in 1627. It was very interesting to interact with them. If you like history then this is a good... More

We spent about three hours here and enjoyed it a lot. This is a wonderful place to learn about the early Pilgrim settlement and life, as well as the interactions between them and the native Wampanoag people. I'd describe this as a three-part experience. First, there's the film and exhibits in the visitor center where you enter. See them, they're... More

Plimouth Plantation is not just about the English settlers, but also their Wampanoag neighbors. The Wampanoag descendants who greet visitors speak in today's English to explain life in a 17th century native American village. The people who role play the English settlers not only convincingly speak 17th century English, but also convey the experience of living in 1627 under King... More

In order to recreate 17th century life from both the Native Wampanoag and English colonists' perspectives, Plimoth Plantation built both a Native Homesite and an English Village populated by role-players who give life to the complicated experiences of both cultures. Cultural clashes and cooperation are explored in the film that precedes the visits to the Homesite and Village. Both are... More

Kids loved meeting the natives and seeing the acting colonists. We loved the colonial and Wampanong food dishes at the restaurant. We also were impressed to see whole familes at work and play in the Wamponong village. It really added to the experience. The baby was in skins lying in a hollowed out log cradle on bear fur.
