They do a fantastic job at the plantation of showing you an authentic view of colonial life and the heritage of the native people. The actors are always in character and it really helps connect with some of the realities of life in those days. Great facility and gift shop also.

We loved going to the plantation. Very educational and loved the way the villagers where so knowlegable. Ate at the cafe, was really good though alittle expensive for what it was. Great gift shops!

“Lovely and informative experience!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We enjoyed the Plimoth Plantation in October, 2013, on a off and on rainy day. The reconstructed village with real people enacting the lives of the pilgrims and Indians, was a wonderful way to understand the history of both people groups. Each 'pilgrim and Indian' took as much time to explain and answer questions as was needed. The whole plantation is beautifully set by the ocean and well cared for. My husband and I truly enjoyed ourselves!
