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...

So, we visited mainly because my wife has an ancestor who actually came over on the Mayflower. Imagine her surprise to actually meet his son while touring the area. The actors are supposed to "live" as they would have lived back then, so they memorize all the information and factoids that can be found on their character. Well, my wife... More

Our family spent a very enjoyable day here experiencing the daily routines of the native Americans and the Pilgrims who settled this area.

The demonstrations of 1620s life here were somewhat interesting, though there really wasn't a whole lot to see, all in all. The native demonstrators were very friendly and willing to answer questions, and observing the English re-enactors (and listening to their interesting accents) was a decent way to spend a little time. We also enjoyed walking around the English village... More

Our group consisted of a few adults and 5 kids that ranged from 6 to 15. The kids loved running around and exploring all the buildings. All of the kids listened to the story tellers, asked them questions, and were very interested in everything going on. There is so much to see and do at the plantation that the kids... More

It was my first time visiting, and we all found it fascinating. Our group was 2 adults, a 13 year old boy and 18 year old girl - everyone loved it and we all learned something new. We arrived about noontime on a weekday, and there was no line at all. We had lunch in the little cafe in the... More

A few blocks north of Samoset street close to downtown. Huge statue with engravings re: the early pilgrams and settlement. Other than a gravel road that runs around the monument and walking to and around it, there is nothing else here.

My children twin 4 year olds, and a 7 year old had a womderful time here. They helped the " Pilgrims " weed their gardens , beat and wash their laundry and even played a game ( sorry I forgot what the name was). When they went to the Wampanog homesite they were taught and helped in making a fish... More
