We came here with our 4th grader and 6th grader. The 4th grader was learning about early American history so this stop was excellent. The plantation is not huge and it won't take a full day to go through everything. The Indian village is well done and the people there answer questions as if they lived in the current day.... More

A very clever idea and well worth a visit but perhaps go in good weather when the characters are out and about doing something practical so there is something to ask about. We went in the rain and everyone was in there house so we found we were asking the same things each time. But do go!

This is a living museum and one that should be respected. The Pilgrim and Native Americans are there to expand your awareness of early life. Listen, learn and experience. I recommend reading up on the early life in America before visiting. Both adults and children should expect to be involved in the role-playing of the pilgrims of the past and... More

Didn't expect this attraction to be anything out of the ordinary, but it was very interesting. We all enjoyed it. Makes you think about how brave and special all these people were that came here, dealing with all the elements. We found the Wampanoag village very interesting as well... And how appropriate to have this village be the first thing... More

We had a fantastic couple of hours on a beautiful sunny day visiting the plantation. Really interesting history as well as fun interactive aspects, and a nice place just to walk around. Great museum shop, ample parking and very reasonably priced. We would go back!

A wonderful place for a class field trip or a family visit. Experience Pilgrim life compared and contrasted with Native American life. View demonstrations of 17th Century village life, a movie about the settlement of the original Plymouth Colony and take a walk through the living museum. Great to pair with a trip to the Mayflower II at the Plymouth... More

Plimouth Plantation is definitely worth a visit. I have been four or five times and have never been disappointed. It is a recreation of the way the Plimouth colony looked like in 1627. They have done a great deal of research to make sure it is as authentic and close to the original as possible. The village is staffed with... More

I have been a resident of Plymouth for over 50 years. I never get tired of visiting the Plantation with our guests from all over the world. - A great way to learn what the life for the Pilgrims and Indians was like; nothing like stepping back in time and leaving our age of electronics behind. The staff is very... More
