We went into the day expecting to have a good time, but were blown away by just how much fun we ended up having. The real gems here are the people. You can go and look at the recreation of Plimouth Plantation, but you won't get much out of it unless you talk to the actors/guides. They all portray real... More

So much to see and do. Lovely place to walk around and really get a feel of what life would have been like. Entering into all the houses, each one different from the other and hearing all the tales from the people who lived in them was very interesting and fun. Highly recommend.

This is a great recreation of what the village of Plimoth was like. We enjoyed walking around and entering buildings etc. It was interesting to hear docents in costume explaining what they were doing.

Slightly hampered by autumn drizzle, we nevertheless had a very rewarding time exploring the various aspects of Plymouth plantation. Actors, as always, are well versed in their history and convincing. We visited eight years ago and there have been significant improvements, the on-site historians for instance. An eye-opening introduction to how the Plymouth colony became established.

Fantastic attraction, we really enjoyed it. The pilgrims who stayed in character were very entertaining and it was such an informative way to learn about their lives at the time. Amazing ocean views all around and the food in the cafe was surprisingly decent also.

The model of presenting information is costumed characters. There weren't enough of them. Those we listened to or interacted with were very good. Nonetheless one cannot walk away without beinbg awed by the challenges faced by the Mayflower settlers.

We attended the recreation of the Plymouth settlement and were witnessed to a variety of activities of actors portraying the villagers. The actors were highly professional and proficient at answering questions.

Plimoth Plantation combines the life of the native Americans with that of the Mayflower settlers. The stories of the native people was very powerful, clearly showing their respect & connection to the land. It also showed the lifestyle of the settlers which is very simple by modern standards. The reconstruction is very sympathetic to life at that time and certainly... More

This is a very well-done "museum." The layout of the outdoor exhibits takes you through the Indian village and into the village of worn wood houses with dirt floors. There are actors portraying actual Pilgrims who interact in the period, and historical interpreters on site as well. The visitor center is beautiful with a lovely cafe and gift shop.

Thank jc44
