Put aside all previous teachings from grade schools back when....there's a phenomenal experience waiting at the Plimoth Plantation. Visiting, listening, tasting, learning; all with documented, authentic teachings where one can capture the "real" story of our early settlers. The staff is learned and well trained, the setting is perfect, and the establishment's hospitality is the best. Don't cut your visit... More

Well this is where modern day America started, allegedly. Although maybe the Virginians would dispute it. The Mayflower pulled into the harbour with its cargo of non-conformist religious zealots and set up shop trying to convert the locals. The way they lived in the early 17th century is cleverly portrayed in this living museum. You can watch and talk to... More

This is a historical recreation of the first settlement in Plymouth. Cast members take on the roles of real settlers, such as Governor Bradford, Priscilla Alden, etc and will not break character to answer where the snack bar is located! Kids love to explore the fort and homes and there are lots of animals roaming around. They often are in... More

Our family visited right before Thanksgiving. Everything was perfect to communicate and detail the Pilgrim experience. Enjoyed the gift shop and purchasing turkey platters and pumpkin pie stands for our future Thanksgivings, always remembering our family's visit to Pilgrim Plantation.

This is a wonderful attraction for children and for adults. You walk around a replica of the original Pilgrim village with thatched roof houses and a fort. There is also an Indian village. All the people are dressed in authentic pilgrim or Indian clothing and they stay in character as they talk with you. They have a gift shop.

We enter on our Honeymoon. It was deifnitely interesting. The people played their characters well. The villages were intriguing to see how people lived back then. The Native American actors were OK but didn't seem as into their roles as the Pilgrims. All in all it was just OK. Families with younger children would probably enjoy it more. Tip!! They... More

Incredible experience and I highly recommend! You get to experience a village (actors portray life as it was) with early settlers performing everyday tasks. On the flip side, you get to meet descendants of native persons and learn about what life was like for them when the settlers arrived. It gives an interesting view of both sides of the story....

Fun place to go to it has a lot of history. I was thankful that I didn't have to pay for this visit as the regular admittance price is high, but worth supporting the cause. You could plan on seeing this place in a few hours time. It is amazing to see how the first settlers lived. Pretty neat place.

We are local to Boston but came down to Plymouth for a long weekend with my child and aged parents. The Wampanoag site and Pilgrim historical village are fascinating. It pays to be curious and ask the Wampanoag and historical actors in the village a lot of questions and it is possible to learn a lot. My only comment would... More
