“An historical gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

I've been to "living museums" around the world and still like Plimouth Plantation best. There is so much to learn about the area's history and so many ways to learn it! Food, dress, family life and culture is all rolled into the experience through multi-media presentations, interpretive guides, an immersion into the 17th century!

“Learning experience - why reading is important, why communism fails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is an interactive pilgrim settlement and a native american tribe. The pilgrims talk to you in their characters, and live and think like the pilgrims in the 1620s. They will get scared if you pull a camera on them and the word photograph means nothing to them. The Indians are 21st century members of different american tribes who are there to teach you about the life of that specific village in the 1620s. They speak English, since they are nowadays Americans, but they will be performing activities that were performed at the time the pilgrims came and will gladly explain to you how the natives used to live at the time.
I learned so much as I saw history coming to life. Some of the stuff was things I had read in books and some were things I had never heard about.
Talked to the village's pastor and his wife - who wondered what's the need for anyone to learn to read if they learn everything they need from their parents. Survival was the key for them. And I left thinking how it was now obvious why their children were so far removed from their piety... lack of background knowledge and the skills to examine the Bible by themselves - which their parents had the ability to do...
I also learned why communism was a bad idea - the lazy settlers took advantage of the hard workers.

“step back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

this is a real experiance of day to day life in 1620 plimoth. the characters are unflapable in the portrayal of their life on the day you are there. if you try to trick them they dont mind just be thoughtful of other peoples experience and enjoy the real life feel of a day in our country's history
