This is a great place for all ages. They take you back in time to the village of the original settlers of this country. It is set on a hillside that overlooks the ocean.

By far the most enjoyable thing my travel partner and I did on our trip up the Cape. Even on a dreary day, we trudged around the grounds learning interesting facts from actors in period clothing playing the roles and answering questions as they would in the 1600s. We were encouraged to explore and ask about what we saw. We... More

Plimoth Plantation is not your typical tourist trap. The village is set up as if you are actually in the time period and the "residents" stay in character. It is like you are stepping back in time. Take your time, explore the villages, talk with the craft people and appreciate the history. There is some walking but it is not... More

This is a must if in the area! Very impressive how they truly make you feel like you have taken a step back in time. Fascinating historical information. It was enjoyed by the big kids as much as the little kids.

An authentic step back through the ages where you are able to envision how the pilgrims lived in their very primitive first homes after arriving in America. Actors "know nothing" past 1620 and are historically informed. Don't miss this - it is wonderful!

My husband and I were a bit curious as to whether this would be a "cheesy" tourist type trap, but it really isn't. Though the buildings aren't on the actual site (since the modern day town grew up out of that original site); it isn't far from where it all began. The buildings show excellent attention to detail. The historical... More

I enjoyed exploring this wonderful place during a vacation in July. I was amazed at how many buildings they have to visit. Inside you will find people dressed up and playing parts from that time period. They tell interesting stories and interact well with the visitors. There is a great view from the fort building at the top of the... More

I was here over 20 years ago and had fond memories of this place. We really want to bring our 6-grade son here since he has just learned about Plymouth/Mayflower recently. We love all the characters and the stuff they do and talk about and the architecture and all the little details. The Wampanoag Homesite was really cool, with the... More

This is such a rich historical visit. Everyone we met was knowledgeable and kind, unexpectedly kind. I just wish we had had more time. In the village itself, especially, I could have spent hours listening to the first-person interpreters -- I had had no idea they could be so completely, authentically in character.

Thank Vikiirna
