Owner description: Plimoth Plantation, less than an hour south of Boston and 15 minutes from Cape Cod, is a living museum dedicated to telling the history of Plymouth Colony from the perspective of both the Pilgrims and the Native Wampanoag people. 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. Please note that Mayflower II, our iconic full-scale reproduction of the original ship that sailed to Plymouth in 1620, is currently undergoing restoration. She will return to Plymouth Harbor in 2019. Visit our website for more on this exciting project!

Family trip to learn about the early settlers. The Plantation had plenty of interactive exhibits and small crowds allowed us to ask lots of questions. I was disappointed as I thought would see more characters mingling with the visitors. The Grist Mill was by far my favorite, but it was because it was late in the day and we were the only ones in the exhibit allowing lots of questions.

We really enjoyed our time here. The actors depicting the Pilgrims and Indians were terrific. The realism in the Pilgrim village was so good with so much information on life in those days. The grounds are wonderful to walk around and enjoy. We worth the small investment.

We visited this attraction as part of a group and the majority of us really enjoyed the experience. The characters were really informative. At the time there were several school groups visiting and they took time to answer their questions. The dwellings really helped bring the stories to life. I do not know how much it costs to visit as the entrance fee was included in our trip.

Spent a full day "in the 1600's" with excellent instructive movie to start the juices flowing, followed by a delightful lunch that kept pace. Afterwards our groups of 24 and 24 were taken into the homes, lives, workshops, kitchens, bedrooms and meeting house of all the initial settlers who were, by the way, completely in character (dress, conversation, history, awareness, etc.). Wish I had been able to speak to more of the Wampanoags that were settled there when the Mayflower arrived but it was pouring rain all day and aside from a nice bark tent with a roaring fire vented through hole in ceiling, didn't get to move around much amongst the Indian people. The genuine feel of living their hard existence was made abundantly clear to a point where I felt guilty wanting a cheeseburger! Well, OK, not too guilty..... Weather didn't permit visit to Mayflower 11 but will go back another time for that as it is afloat in Plymouth harbor and a big attraction.

What fantastic Pilgrim reenactments. We felt like we were back in the 1600s. The Native Indian Village however was not a pleasant experience. The Indians used contemporary lingo and seemed to have a political agenda. I would suggest to anyone visiting the Plantation, especially with kids to avoid the Indian Village and focus entirely on the actual Pilgrim reenactments only.
