The ship itself is amazing and in beautiful condition (having just come back from a lengthy refit) but the interior is mostly bare and pretty boring, thereby somewhat defeating the purpose of highlighting the bravery shown and the hardship endured by the early settlers as they journeyed into the unknown to make a new life. There's a little bit in... More

This is okay for a 1-time visit. Been here 3 or 4 times. The ship is a nice replica, but you could learn just as much about the voyage of the Pilgrims through books or videos. They need to bring the prices down!

I like ships and I found the Mayflower very interesting. It is a must for history buffs but children will be board very quickly. the crew know there stuff, and tell it with enthusiasm

Tons and tons of history to learn in here. It's a gift from England to USA in the early 1900's. From what we were told, it's leaving the harbor later this year for "a while" for an extensive restoration.

It was interesting to see what the ship was like during the Pilgrims' travel. But would suggest that one purchase the Heritage Pass which included all three(The Plantation, Grist Mill, and MayflowerII) it is cheaper and worth the price to see all three. The boat takes about 20min to explore so not worth the individual tour.

This was good insight into a piece of American history but I felt it was pricey for such a small vessel tour. The actors did a great job of staying in character. I felt it was a one time must see.

Another way to literally experience the past. It's amazing to think that people actually lived in that hold and crossed the Atlantic.

We found this by accident and decided to stop. Was a very cool town and was neat to see History come alive. Plymouth is a must see for History Buffs Town is full of history and interesting sites.

Authentic learning experience. Kids get a real sense of the challenges faced by the colonists in 1620. Charcter actors are very knowledgeable and friendly. Cautions: no public restrooms inside the museum area; accents/dialects make characters sometimes hard to understand.

We bought the package ticket that included a visit to the Plimoth Plantation with the Mayflower II included for an added $3. The ship was interesting but easily seen in 45 minutes. It's a full size replica of the original Mayflower which is interesting to a point.
