The entire visit was informative and having both sides of the story told by the early settlers and Indians brought to light some interesting facts about our early history. You must visit to discover an unusual fact presented at the beginning of the visit.

It was a wonderful experience to visit Plymouth, Massachusetts, and especially to take a walk through Plimoth Plantation. If you have children or grandchildren, take them to see this re-creation of the village where original Americans lived. The staff who work there are dressed in appropriate period costumes and will only answer your questions as the pilgrim they portray. It... More

Taking visiting family or friends to the Plantation is always on the list of things to do. Try to avoid school trip days as the experience can be overwhelming, but every age gets something out of this visit and it really is important to take a moment and imagine how it was.

No matter what age, we all had fun and an educational experience. I highly recommend for children in grade school learning about the Pilgrims journey. I do wish they had authentic food available for tasting out in the display areas but I do understand they legally cannot.

Visiting Plimouth Plantation really gave us the chance to feel immersed in the history of the area. We visited the Wampanoag village first, where we were invited to watch demonstrations by the guides and ask questions. Next, we went across a lovely wooden walkway which takes advantage of the natural scenery, and entered the English village, where the actors portrayed... More

I felt like I was actually back in the settlement time. The actors played their roles so well. They were going about their business as they would have back in the 1600's and would interact with us and tell us about what they were doing and what life was like. They were cooking and eating and feeding the animals. It... More

We went in early April and it happened to be a pretty warm day. Alot of walking. My son, who was 8, loved the Indian site where he could go into the Tee Pee ' s and watch them cook authentic food. The village was also pretty neat. We were able to go into all the houses. Overall a good... More

If you wish to actually learn from actors that portray how life was in the 1600's in Plymouth MA this is your place. Yes the buildings, the life-style and interaction is memorable. Our children have had the chance to visit with their schools and it is one thing to read a book and completely another to see all in person.... More

The characters at the plantation made this one of the most memorable experiences. They were so knowledgeable! It's not just walking through replicas of the buildings. You truly feel like you are interacting with the people who lived at the original plantation.

I was in Boston for a history teachers convention and I signed up for a day at Plimoth as a pre-convention tour. I loved it but we were there the week before Thanksgiving along with ten thousand school children (I stopped counting the school buses after twenty). I'm still glad I went but missed out on hearing all the speakers... More
