I returned to the sight of the attraction that we frequented so many times during the 70's and 80's. This time I brought my grandchildren. I remember a working village with so many working exhibits including homes being built and repaired with thatched roofs explained and installed, working gardens being manicured and tepees and houses well staffed and engaging. Instead... More

We really enjoyed our visit to Plimoth Plantation! Before going, we did quite a bit of reading about the pilgrims, including watching the PBS documentary "Pilgrims" so we could really appreciate what we were seeing. The Wampanoag people were very interesting to listen to and happy to answer questions; it was fun to see them cooking traditional meals over the... More

Well worth the visit. You learn about the pilgrims that settled there and the Wampanoag Indians that they found. The park has reproduced many of their dwellings accurately. The staff in place were actors playing the roles of their day. All Indian staff were certified to be from a real tribe. Well worth the experience.

its a living history park, where there are people in character wearing the clothes and speaking in the dialect from the time of the 17th century Pilgrim.On the other side is an Wampanoag Indian Homesite, where again you have characters dressed as the native indians,the kids ages 9 and 11 found this one very interesting.

Living in Plymouth we get a deep discount on admission. There is a lot of walking involved. The pilgrim village is great and very interactive as the staff is fantastic. The Wampanog village is nice but the staff is less interactive and seem less welcoming, which is a shame for our tourists. There is a cafe, theater, gift shop and... More

We are history fanatics and just loved our Mother's Day trip with my in-laws to the Plantation. You tour this place on foot at your leisure so you can see as little or as much as you'd like. I'm ready to go back and with a list of questions I'd like to ask of the interpreters who were all VERY... More

This is a wonderful place to visit as long as you are willing to talk to the people who are willing to tell you about the lives of the native Americans and/or of the settlers of 1620. So it is not Disney land. There are 3 types of residents there: 1. true native Americans who will talk in their 21st... More

The village itself is not very interesting (unless you are a history fan or never saw something similar before). Kids were not excited at all. Overpriced. Actors play well but the management should definitely add something for the kids. Don't go if the weather is too hot.
