The rein actors make the visit worthwhile. Emerge yourself in 1627 and asks them who they are and what happened to them and their family. Most likely you will see the hardship and the joy of the voyage.

There were 4 of us in our party visiting Plimoth Plantation, and we thoruoghly enjoyed our day. The native american part of the attraction featured authentic dwellings, tools, costumes etc, but the people spoke to us in modern day language. the idea is that they can explain their past, present and future. After walking through the Wampanoag Homesite, you arrive... More

Very worthwhile living museum, portraying life in Plymouth in the 1600's. Native Americans portrayed their ancestors and shared what life was like for them in a simulated village. Actors in period garb and dialect were in the English settlement, a well constructed village of the period. We had two youngsters with us (6 and 9 - boys) and they as,... More

It's like you have stepped back in time when you talk to the people. They dress in costume and speak the dialect of the time. Mention TV, airliners, elec. power and etc and they look at you as to say what in the world are you talking about.

The 17th century village is definitely a portal into the past. Walk through their streets and step into a typical home from that time. The actors in this village will not break character and they seem to really have fun with their job. The Wampanoag village was quite the sight to see as well. While they don't take you into... More

Don't miss the Plimoth Plantation. Actors portraying citizens seemed very authentic. It was good fun to engage them in conversation! Expect to spend about 1/2 day. And don't miss the gift shop!

This living plantation of the Pilgrims is not to be missed if you are in the area. Very informative of the lifestyle of the challenges of the day. Enjoyed the actors in character though out the exhibits. There was one native in the Indian village that should seek other employment. The gift shop was amazing!

Plimouth Plantation is a very interesting museum and definitely a must stop on any visit to the area. We personally spent about an hour or so here, I wouldn't count on spending the whole day at the place.

This is a very well done living history presentation. The village of the Native Americans gives one a hint of America's early days. They explain well how their homes were constructed, how food was prepared as well as daily rituals. After a nice walk (on a boardwalk) on the river path, one finds the recreated 1627 Plimoth village. When peeking... More

It was good seeing how the pilgrims live after being here for 7 years. The reenactors in the 1627 village did a great job of staying in character. I would have enjoyed more if the native american village had done the same. It is worth the visit.
