This is a wonderful living picture of what our ancestors lives were like when they came to America on the Mayflower. It also portrays Indian life at that time. The character employees are wonderfully informative. The village is built on the side of a hill so wear good walking shoes for your visit. If you are handicapped they do offer... More

You will see how the settlers that came over on the Mayflower lived during that time. There are individuals there that will explain what is happening.

The recreation of Plimoth settlement is so well done, it feels very authentic, and I love that each cast member plays a real, specific person from the town. They never break character and can answer most questions you ask about what life was like in that time period. The activities they perform vary by season, too, just as they would... More

We really enjoyed our visit to Plimoth Plantation. We enjoyed watching the The Wampanoag Homesite was very interesting. There were both costumed interpreters and non-costumed. In this section of museum, all the interpreters are not role playing, but speaking from today. The Craft Center houses a potter, a maker of headdresses, a weaver, a soap maker, bee keeper and bakers.... More

We've been to several similar presentations in the USA and have enjoyed them. The first section of this plantation is the local indigenous people in a typical settlement. There were 2 men demonstrating building dwellings and cooking. The guy making the dwellings and beds was very hard work. He clearly didn't want to speak to us and we just got... More

Had a great time. So good to listen to the stories. Made you feel like you went back to the 1600's. The views were to die for.

A great place to bring history alive and to see the early formation of what is now America. Lovely place and lovely people. Could not ask for a more better place to visit. Well trained staff speak in old English and do not talk about Cell Phones etc as they will look at you and question what you are talking... More

Came here, obviously! Recommend this even if you're only vaguely interested in history. Be warned, a lot of the staff are in character; and are they good or what? The museum includes a Wampanoag village and Plimoth settlement as was. What a great experience. You can ask the staff anything you like, but you get an answer from a 17th... More
