The staff all kept in character the whole time. Both the Indian and Pilgrim characters was believable. Great place!

It was SOOO informative ! The "actors" are really good at what they do. I love that they are participating in daily activities as if you were not there. It was so "real".

I joined a group tour to the Plimoth Plantation. It was a very cool place. It was like time traveling, back to the 17th century. First, we watched a short film briefly talking about what we are about to visit. Then we walked in to a Wampanoag tribe. We talked to the Natives for a bit, then we walked to the English Colonist village. In the village, there were many different characters dressed up telling us about their daily lives.

I think I went to Plimoth twice as a kid. I hated it both times. And I remember vividly my parents getting into some kind of "argument" with an actor there, who was not particularly friendly to their questions.

Well this time was different. I'm a grown up and open and excited to learn about this time in history, and also get the experience of "reliving" it with the actors, who were outstanding. In fact, I've been to Williamsburg (VA) recently and the actors there do not compare to the ones here. These guys were so good (in their consistent speech style and in fielding tough questions) that I think my brain did convince me that they were really living/surviving in that place, in that time. Really, really cool. And to my parents' frustration: I think this is a surly group all around. I don't mean the actors themselves, but the pilgrims. In 1627 with no bathrooms I'd be pretty surly too. :)

Wow! I loved the plantation. It was so cool to see the way they used to do things. The wampanoag homesite was cool. They were cooking and told us everything we asked about. The English village was nice and so fun to go in the houses and talk to the "colonists". Awesome place!
