...before it goes away for 30 months for major repairs. The Mayflower II is a must-see for early-American history lovers. This 1957 reproduction of a typical 17th century European cargo vessel of the type the Pilgrims arrived by in 1620 will amaze you in its size (too small to carry 102 passengers plus crew, certainly!), and its staff (some portraying...

Seeing this full-sized replica of the original Mayflower was really quite remarkable. It's incredible to think that 102 Pilgrims made the voyage in what we would now consider a tiny ship. Like Plimoth Plantation there are actors on board that will share the history of the ship and their "voyage". The ship is a stunning sight and the staff make... More

My kids found the ship particularly fascinating, not only because of the staff on the ship, but also knowing that it actually had made the journey from England to New England back in the 1950s.

Amazing to think that a ship this size crossed the atlantic, let alone the crew living on it for so long. That the "crew" all dressed & talked in character added an extra dimension - please do not try to catch them out, but it was interesting that when one lady really wanted to ask something, because a member of...

Everyone should visit the Mayflower. Such an interesting piece of history and reminder of the difficult journeys made by our ancestors. Go to the Cranberry House gift shop next door and have a lobster roll on the deck of the restaurant behind Plymouth Rock.

Tour only took a hour at most. We were very leisurely about our visit and listened to the wonderful ship guides. They've done a fantastic job recreating the ship too!

I loved visiting this ship. Hard to believe 102 passangers fit on this ship. The staff was in character. I could really get a sense of how it was back in the day. Loved it!!
