Plimoth Plantation is a great history lesson - much better than textbooks because you can skip the boring parts and ask real people about colonial life. I enjoyed both the Indian and English villages and was impressed with the young tribes people who genuinely care about educating the masses about their culture. I also thought the reenactors were dedicated as... More

This Plantation is a recreation of the time of the Pilgrims circa 1620. Many exhibits and docent's in period garb explaining their character in the time that they lived. Be prepared to do a bit of walking. Have on good shoes and umbrella if rain is in the forecast. A wonderful place to visit for history buffs and to teach... More

The reenactors know their stuff and the plantation is about as realistic as they come. I've included some photographs taken here so enjoy. Plan to spend some time here, ask questions and take pictures. Really, really worth seeing everything. Just may have been the most interesting thing I did while visiting the area. I believe they plan on adding another... More

A nice re-enactment village of pilgrims. Each character did a great job telling their story. Hubby got to be part of the military.

Plimoth Plantation is a great recreation of what life must have been like for the early settlers in the area. The exhibits seem very authentic, with the "actors" very knowledgeable about the time period. The movie gives a good overview of what you will see. It IS a lot of walking, but they are willing to give you any help... More

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
