A little time visiting the Mayflower II is nothing compared to how long it took for the original crew to cross the ocean. This must see is really fun and informative! The character portrayal of the staff onboard is amazing and very entertaining. Feel free to ask questions and you get good period responses. This is a site you could... More

I visited the Mayflower II because I figured it was something a person should see as long as you are there sight seeing. I also had heard it will be gone 2 1/2-3 years for refurbishing so I went. I guess I didn't know what to expect. It was interesting especially the stories by the people that worked on the... More

This recreation of the original Mayflower is worth seeing, in conjunction with Plimoth Plantation. You can get a real feel for what it must have been like for the Pilgrims to come to America. The costumed interpreter was fun to listen to, and had great stories.

Great to visit this after learning about its construction as a kid in Plymouth, Devon (yes I'm that old). We visited this as part of our trip to the Plimoth Plantation, which is a must, but could see it every day from the deck at our B&B. The old girl is off for restoration in advance of the Mayflower 400... More

Having travelled a long way to get here this is an attraction which must be visited. Having said that it won't take you long to see it all and I would expect it must be pretty crowded at times.

The Mayflower II is a piece of living history. I'm not so sure that I could have done 66 days crossing in that small a ship. It was interesting to see and it made you appreciate what they went through to come to the new world. Happy Thanksgiving.

We chose a great time to visit, since there were only a couple others on the ship, and we had the "Captain" telling stories for our pleasure. The period-dressed actor spoke of incredibly interesting aspects of the voyage that none of us read in school. We didn't find the interactive areas quite as interesting, but they seemed to be more...

After paying an admission fee, my bf & i came across a pilgrim & he was very friendly & he was in character (he did this very well). We approached the ship thru walls of history. The ramp was steep but was able to walk up onto the ship. When on the ship, met up with a couple of sailors... More

We were glad we caught it before it gets to go for restoration work to Mystic Seaport soon. Gives you a real feel for the terrible journey to come over from Europe.

Unlike the Plantation museum, the Mayflower II doesn't feel authentic in the same way. The cast members never break character, but it also feels as though they aren't as well prepared as their landlubber peers and seemed to struggle to answer many of our questions about life on the ship and their journey over the Atlantic.
