When you walk on board just try to amagine how all those pilgrims fit on that ship and traveled to Plymouth with a lot of the being sick and everything and how long it took to get here. It is a must see.

For those of you visiting Plymouth to check out all the historical aspects, the Mayflower II is a must see. A little pricey, but where else can you see a replica of the ship that transported the pilgrims to the new world. Amazing to see how people and items may have been crammed on the ship for a long voyage.... More

Actors portray the era with great historical narrative and information. They share and reveal the difficult transition from England to a barren, new world experienced by the pilgrims. Actors "know nothing" past the year 1620 ... great take!

I would recommend going to the Pilgrim Hall Museum instead of visiting the Mayflower II. There you 'll get more for your money. The actors playing historical figures were really bad and implausible. Maybe I have seen to many historical ships, but I was really disappointed. And it was so expensive!

I'm not one for places with actors playing historical figures, so was apathetic about visiting this. The biggest revelation, however, was how many people and how much stuff was crowded below decks. It helped put the pilgrims journey and suffering in perspective.

We saw the Mayflower II after visiting Plimouth Plantation when we came to visit in June. It is just so amazing to see the ship and hear about the history. They have characters on the ship, similar to Plimouth Plantation. It's a must-do especially if you have a 5th or 6th grader!

While we were there we were told it was about to be sent for restoration work for the upcoming big anniversary in 2020. Volunteers and actors were great. Learnt a lot, though there was not as much to see as I... More

This is the Mayflower II, a replica of the original. It's well done, gives you a good idea of what the pilgrims life was like on their journey. Incredible that they came over the Atlantic on that small ship with so many people. The Plymouth Rock monument is very near the ship, about 20 yards away, right next to the... More

You really don't understand the history until you see it for yourself. This is a small ship in comparison to today. Out yourself back in the day and think about what on earth were they thinking. WELL worth the visit.

While the ship might not be what you would expect, that is all the more reason to see it! I cannot imagine traveling across the ocean in something this small with SO many other people! You can get to see the Mayflower as an add on to the Plimouth Plantation which I strongly recommend you do...wonderful history at both sites!
