We stopped in as part of a small Boston trip. From the pictures, we thought it would be a little bigger. We stopped on a mid-October Monday and lots of activity. The Native Americans were very happy to share their culture, especially the young man burning out a canoe log. The people in the village were also happy to play... More

Be sure to see the movie prior to going out to visit. Talk to all the Plantation people from the Indians to the Pilgrims. Just remember that this is a new era and if you ask to take their picture, they won't know what you are talking about. This was a great experience.

The visit to the Plimouth Plantation was much more than I expected! The re-enactors were simply marvelous, credible and very entertaining. If you are curious and engaged with the re-enactors who are native Wamponoags (indians) and re-enactors of the original pilgrim settlers from the Mayflower, you will enhance your enjoyment of your visit! We spent three very worthwhile hours at... More

A delightful way to learn about history. No panels to read in the main site, you have to interact with the excellent staff to learn about both the indigenous people and the settlers. An excellent introductory film sets up your visit and the two different styles of input of role play and real life delivery from the Wapanoeg people are... More

We visited the Mayflower. The people on board were great and told wonderful stories which painted a great picture of their journey . The plantation was a big disappointment . It was boring . Could be much better. Their costumes were filthy. Boring . Just a few to look at and it was the same in every house. Their was... More

There are really extensive reviews on this site, so I won't explain the plantation - I will just tell you what we liked. We went on a Wednesday afternoon in October so it was not a crowded. The film did a nice job of giving a history of Plymouth. We then went to the Native American portion of the settlement.... More

Three generations of us (66 year old mother, 40 year old me, and 6 year old daughter) spent 3 hours here on Saturday. The introductory video is not to be missed for the exploration of the history of the place. The addition of the Native American area was a huge improvement from what I remember in my childhood. The Native... More

Welcome to the 17th century and a look at where the American natives met with English colonists. Very expansive and not easy to visit much of the attractions if walking is a problem. Among the things to see are a native homesite complete with natives who are informative about their conditions and livestyle. Moving on to a recreated English village... More

We have just come home from our holiday in New England and spent the last day in Plymouth. We started in theory and visited the Mayflower. The people on board were great and told wonderful stories which painted a great picture of their journey and life. We then went on to the other sites near by before going to the... More

My mom and I visited Plimouth Plantation on our Boston/Cape Cod girl's trip. I'm a direct descendant (11th generation) of two of the Mayflower passengers, so Plimouth Plantation held personal interest for me. But anyone would enjoy the Plantation. It's a large living museum set 7 years after the Mayflower hit ground in 1620. You begin with an informative video... More
