Our daughter is spending a year in Boston area, so we have been helping find some attractive places to visit for her family. By travelling south from Boston one can find this well done museum about the Englishmen who arrived at Plymouth in 1620. We enjoyed the 1627 English Village recreation with burning fires, livestock roaming, actors in character (mainly Devonian accents to our ears) and varied interiors to buildings. We also used the Children's discovery area which our small ones greatly enjoyed. The shops were too enticing. It is large and requires quite a bit of walking. But it is worthwhile enough to buy a season ticket. The exhibition on Thanksgiving was informative, but of course they try to be very politically correct so go warned that history is rewritten from Native American point of view (which is of course reasonable, if it were balanced by the European settler opinion, sadly neglected).
