The place is great, especially for the little ones who can run and play.
The ticket is expensive (25$ per adult).
Parking is free.
Don't go on a hot day!!!!!

We visited the plantation with our grandchildren aged 5 and 9. We watched the movie and visited all of the sites. It was very fun and the 5 year old was enchanted as well. We could hardly keep up with her. It was amazing how authentic it was and very interesting to ask the people questions about how they lived.

I love Plimoth Plantation. They are so authentic that one can almost feel as if they have stepped into a time machine which wisked you back to 1620+. It is a definate in the fall when the leaves are turning. Do not go during the week when school is in session because there are hoards of kids running around and it really takes away from the ambiance.

I've been in love with Plimoth Plantation since 4th grade when I went on an overnight with Cub Scouts. I hadn't even thought about acting at that point, though I always did enjoy doing accents. Since graduating from university with a theatre degree though, the place is only more impressive. I can't imagine the actors--and it's hard to even think of them as actors--going home at the end of the day and going to Stop & Shop. They really feel like they're from the time. They're obviously profoundly educated on what life was like in that time, and they exhibit this life without ever breaking character. It's a great experience.

This is a good place to spend a few hours land seeing how people used to live. Spent a lot of times in the Indian village and learned many things. Had an especially long conversation with "Bear" who makes toys. Ask anyone there a question and they gladly answer your question. The only draw back was we visited when schools were have field trips there. Kids running everywhere and were not kept in control. Don't forget to use your AAA card for discount!
