“Worth Seeing”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We were quite happy with our visit to the Mayflower II. This reproduction gives visitors a look at the vessel used by the settlers. One could easily imagine the grueling journey they undertook. It is a fun visit because the actors are in character and try to convey a sense of what the journey was like. The information presented here represents a significant event in US history and it is worth taking the time to add this to any Boston area itinerary.

“Mayflower II”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

While currently in dry-dock repair until this coming May, in the past the Mayflower II, a reproduction from the 1950's, was a must-see attraction. It gives a real sense of historical scale, such as how the heck 108 people could possibly have survived for 6 weeks crammed below deck without having thrown each-other overboard just for amusement. Yet, somehow they survived, only to have half of them perish within the first winter. Welcome to America, guys!!

“Gave me a new respect for the Pilgrams”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Such a small ship and so many people. Travelling through the North Atlantic, not knowing where they were really headed. Unbelievably brave! And the idea of those who remained watching the ships sail off again not knowing when they might return...I get goose bumps! I was able to visit Germany before I married and then moved here. At least I knew what to expect and still it is hard to go away from your Homeland. I have a new respect for the pilgrams!

“Trip back in time”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Exploring the Mayflower II was like a step back in time. To think that so many people were crammed into such a small area is mind blowing. No privacy, no fresh water, no sanitary conditions, etc. it is an wonder any survived the trip. Really an eye opener. The staff were knowledgeable and very helpful in making the seen come to life. A must see for anyone in the area.

“Another living museum”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is of course not the real Mayflower II, but a life size replica. The characters will talk to you as if they were coming right out of 1620, and you can ask them any questions you want about their life style and thoughts. Very nice.
