We went in early April and it happened to be a pretty warm day. Alot of walking. My son, who was 8, loved the Indian site where he could go into the Tee Pee ' s and watch them cook authentic food. The village was also pretty neat. We were able to go into all the houses. Overall a good... More

If you wish to actually learn from actors that portray how life was in the 1600's in Plymouth MA this is your place. Yes the buildings, the life-style and interaction is memorable. Our children have had the chance to visit with their schools and it is one thing to read a book and completely another to see all in person.... More

The characters at the plantation made this one of the most memorable experiences. They were so knowledgeable! It's not just walking through replicas of the buildings. You truly feel like you are interacting with the people who lived at the original plantation.

I was in Boston for a history teachers convention and I signed up for a day at Plimoth as a pre-convention tour. I loved it but we were there the week before Thanksgiving along with ten thousand school children (I stopped counting the school buses after twenty). I'm still glad I went but missed out on hearing all the speakers... More

A very interesting excursion back into the time of the first settlers who went across on the Mayflower, and the local Native Americans that they found there. It was well conceived. An impressive collection of historical buiildings and associated artefacts, and the buildings were peopled by re-enactors who stayed in character the whole time. The restaurant was good as was...

As a history buff, I finally got to go. We took our granddaughter and she will have the memories. She was fascinated by the Indians and Pilgrims lived. She is still talking about her visit.

Wow, what a wonderful experience that brought us back in time. We went the day after Thanksgiving - dinner on Thanksgiving Day was booked. Although it was chilly out, it was the perfect time of the year to go and talk about our forefathers. Our kids, ages 10,11 &13 really enjoyed and truly appreciated growing up today!!

It's mostly outside so going on a day when it was flurrying was a bad choice. We went the day after Thanksgiving and it hit a high of 31 degrees. We bundled up but after a few hours, our hands and feet were numb and I couldn't make my kids do it any longer. I'm sure a really hot day... More

You need at least one day to explore this museum site. Good sunny day would help. There are packages you can purchase: I would recommend that you also go visit Mayflower. It is a great opportunity to spend a great day with family and friends and learn about tribes and pilgrims. There are real tribe members, and there are professional... More
