I got the feeling that some of the guides were writing their Masters Theses on the subjects they were discussing. The interpreters would comment on the details and extrapolate. We had fascinating discussions with the Native American interpreters. They answered all our questions and we discussed various topics, both relevant to the 17th century and today. Highly recommended!

Renarkable safety precautions through the buildings and outdoors regarding Covid. Sadly, that also meant much less educational programming and demonstrations. No crowds at all meant the kids had the place enciuding the cow and the goats to themselves. Still a fun visit, buy pricey.

This used to be a world-class, living history museum. But the village is now showing signs of wear and tear and getting neglected. Perhaps its the lack of funds due to the lack of attendance because of Covid, but I think with all the membership fees, they'd fix things up. When once the village was teeming with character actors, now there's maybe 3 people. You can't enter the houses or have any of the experiences you once were able to have. What a shame.

The safety of our guests and staff are important. The museum adheres to all Commonwealth of Massachusetts guidelines. The Indigenous and colonial interpretation staff have done a remarkable job providing new opportunities to experience 17th century life-ways during this health situation Yes, last year, guests were welcome to step inside a Pilgrim home, sit down, talk, and immerse in activities. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer the exact same program safely and ensure the required 6 foot distance. Rather, we have created new and exciting programs that offer similar experiences outdoors and some with Pilgrims from their doorways. We, like you, would love to go back the way it was, that's not possible, at this time. While visiting the 17th-Century English Village, you'll see several new houses that were completed last year, including the home of Governor Bradford, a new field for the animals and farming area, along with many colonial interpreters through-out the Village.

Nice grounds, interesting to talk with the actors, the gift shops are very good. The exhibits and buildings are very well maintained and give you a good picture of how different life was in colonial times.
