Interesting replica

It was interesting to see how people sailed across the ocean in the 1600s and I'm amazed they didn't all die. There are actors on the boat who are dressed in clothing of the times... read more

We enjoyed the tour of the Mayflower - and we were really fortunate to be in Plymouth just before the ship went for a refit. Great role play by the actors on board - gave a realistic view of the voyage. Worth going to see when it returns in 2020.

Unfortunately, if you are in Plymouth, you will not be able to see the Mayflower II for now- it is being restored for the 400th anniversary celebration in 2020 of the Pilgrims' landing. Head to Mystic Seaport in Mystic, CT if you want to see the work in progress (see pictures below)

Do NOT expect to find it in Plymouth - they have it in Mystic Seaport CT being outfitted - in time for the 400th anniversary of Plymouth

It was interesting to see how people sailed across the ocean in the 1600s and I'm amazed they didn't all die. There are actors on the boat who are dressed in clothing of the times and talk to you as though you are on the original boat. I learned a lot about the politics of the time and the perils... More

You can see it from the bay, you don't necessarily need to check it out. The most impressive thing about checking it out, is realizing how many people came over on the ship and how they all fit on it.

A great location for photo ops, the replica ship sits in the actual harbor that the real Mayflower sailed on. In addition, the ship is probably 1/4 a mile from Plymouth Rock, so you can walk between both famous landmarks. Residents of Mass get to see the ship for free, but tourists have to pay for entry.

This ship is an exact replica of the original Mayflower ship - it's a full size reproduction that is also built from wood. It is 59 years old It is situated on the waterfront and really easy to see from the roadside if you don't want to spend the money to take a look around it. It is in the... More

A nice representation of the Mayflower. I am not sure it was worth the admission price but I am not a big history buff and I know the money goes into the organitation to preserve it

We visited Mayflower II just in time as its off to Mystic for dry dock repair. We laughed for ages when we heard a lady telling her friend it was sailing back to Plymouth in the UK for the work as making the journey when new was perilous enough never mind when it needs its leaky hull fixing. When it... More

Very cool to see the ship built to exact specs of the original. Amazing stories told aboard, too. The people on board are dressed and speak as though they are sailing the Mayflower in 1600.

Thank Josh A
