“Plymouth's waterfront is wonderful at any time of the year!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

We always learn something new with each visit to Mayflower II. Entertaining our guests is a treat and easy when you visit Plymouth. Imagining yourself on that long, perilous voyage makes one appreciate the bravery and stamina of the Pilgrims.

“History at its Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Walking aboard the Mayflower II, you can almost imagine yourself as one of those first white settlers that finally landed on the now Plymouth coast. With the costumed interpreters speaking of how "they" endured the voyage, seeing where the men, women, and children slept and learning how they spent time on and below decks, you almost forget the 21st Century lifestyle just off the dock! The replica is a wonderful learning tool for children and adults alike! It's a little tedious when you have young children needing help up and down the stairs but they love it just the same.

“THE SHIP OF DREAMS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

I toured the ship when I was 5 yrs . Now that I'm an adult touring the ship...I can appreciate the struggles and the hardship on that maiden voyage. What history, horrors, death and dreams these pilgrims faced under these accommidations...not like 'cruise ships" today.

“History comes to life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

There's nothing like being on a replica of the Mayflower to bring home the challenges and adventures of the original's journey. The re-enactors are great at answering questions and providing insights within the contexts of their characters.

“A must-see if in Plymouth”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

This ship, located in the harbor right next to Plymouth Rock, is a recreation of the ship on which the Pilgrims crossed the Atlantic Ocean 400 years ago. It was built as faithfully to the original as possible. As for the ship itself, it is neat to see -- especially when you wander around the deck and below and imagine 102 souls cramped together for three long months on the open ocean. But what really makes the Mayflower II (and for that matter, the Plimoth Plantation) special are the historic reenactors. These persons have been trained to speak and to behave in the manner of a 1620 Pilgrim, with the appropriate knowledge base and attitudes, and they are really good! After about five minutes with one of the reenactors, it is easy to believe that you are actually speaking with a person from the original Mayflower. Be sure to do this if you're in the Plymouth area.
