The museum, a Smithsonian Affiliate, features the 17th-Century English Village, Wampanoag Homesite, Craft Center, Plimoth Grist Mill and new waterfront exhibit "Should I Stay Or Should I Go?" Enjoy independent films at Plimoth Cinema and local produce & goods at the weekly Plymouth Farmers' Market.

This place is very interesting to visit. The people are very knowable of the the times. It was an education to see and realize how the people must have lived and survived back then. It would be a great place for kids to travel and visit.

We visited this amazing living museum a week before Thanksgiving; it was overflowing with school children. It was wonderful to hear the children asking so many questions and getting answers that made sense to them.
We are British, so our knowledge of pilgrims is scant to say the least. But I loved this museum especially the Wampanoag home site and the actors in their traditional clothing. We asked loads of questions about Native Americans but I came away wanting to know more about these amazing people and their beliefs.
The Pilgrim village was much larger than I had expected and the actors here had very authentic English accents! It was fascinating to see the privations that the first settlers had to endure.
We bought a ticket that enabled us to go and see the replica of the Mayflower at the harbour. This too was really interesting. I had not realised how small and cramped the conditions on boat were. I think this is a great museum and they do an excellent job at brings this pioneer story alive. I am glad we visited and it’s well worth the entrance fee.

Check the box by visiting Plymouth rock, which is free, and looking at the
mayflower II (built in 1950's) from a distance. No reason to pay the price to get on the boat/visit the artificial plantation which is actually 2 miles up the street. Too expensive for a family and the payback is minimal. We did the thanksgiving dinner buffet (hosted by sodexo food services, who probably services your public school cafeteria as well) and it was absolutely horrible, complete waste of money and time. But at least we can say we had thanksgiving at Plymouth!

We really enjoyed visiting the Plantation. It was an authentic re-creation of life in the 1620's and a very educational experience. We topped off our Thanksgiving there with an informal buffet luncheon in a heated tent in the Visitor's Center.

what a waste of money, $25.50 for a dozen wattle daub and wooden houses, which were grossly inaccurate to the point of a joke, four fake english men who could not discribe what they ate and one who realled off his script like a machine, a cow three sheep and no discription of what they ate,meeting house,church,flora,fauna,mineral discriptions.i can assure you this is laughable. you will learn nothing here save your money.
