The experience was a good one, and the plantation was surprisingly uncrowded for a July day. I recommend taking the time to view the movie in the visitor center prior to lighting out, because it gives good background about the settlers' and the natives' experiences. The Wampanoag village was great, because there was a guy there who was super knowledgeable.... More

Plimouth (yes that’s how they spell it) Plantation is on the outskirts of Plymouth MA and is a recreation of a colonial village from 1627 along with an accompanying Indian village of the same time period. First, let’s start with the spelling “Plimouth” rather than “Plymouth”. It is only recently, relatively speaking, that we’ve had dictionaries and have strived for... More

portrayals stay in character giving one a real feel for the period depicted. Indian village also well portrayed. Village homes are accessible using the names of those living at the time.

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.

Over the years our sites have expanded. A few years ago when we were looking for a way to help guests see all of our sites, a long time friend of Plimoth Plantation donated the funds for the golf carts we are now able to use to help any guest with mobility issues. The carts are driven by several of... More

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

Do not miss the Plymouth Plantation it is a must see. It is like going back in time .Both the Wampanoag and 17 Century English Villiage are amazing. It is very interactive and bring your camera.

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
