Very educational and fun for the entire family. We spent the day there on Thanksgiving, met some locals that had made going there a tradition. If we were not located in Florida we would be there too. Everyone was very nice and friendly.

There was very little happening the morning we visited. A demonstration of lace making and of pottery making in one very large exhibition building. The Mayflower has been taken away for a couple of years for repairs. There were no demonstrations in any of the buildings at the Plantation except for two women who seemed to be arguing about one...

A wonderful bi-cultural site providing insight and information on the Wampanoag Indians who were supportive of the Pilgrims and who lived in peace with them for 50 years. Plus the recreated Pilgrim Village complete with a resident population of Pilgrims who are a mine of fascinating information up to 1624, but who know nothing of the world since that date.... More

After teaching about the Pilgrim experience in the classroom for more than 20 years, visiting Plimouth Plantation (the way William Bradford spelled it) was an especially moving experience. I was surprised by how authentic everything was. One could easily be transported to the 1600s while talking to the Pilgrims. A visitor asked a Pilgrim how many days she had been... More

THIS IS A SERIOUS WORK OF TELLING THE PLIMOUTH STORY --a large very "real" location with character actors , food, sounds ad of course lots of souvenirs available. But in an era when stories of the American Settlement period are "downplayed" in elementary education, here is where kids can get a feeling for how difficult and slow and painful the... More

We were fascinated as we walked through the village and listened to the characters explain the daily life of the pilgrims. Suggestion if you have kids and are going to the dinner: Arrive around 4pm. That will give you enough time to see everything without having a long wait before the 5:30pm dinner starts.

The area is very well set out and the role playing is excellent. Unfortunately, we visited on a day when there were lots of schoolchildren - and so it was more difficult to appreciate all of the role playing. I am not complaining here - as it is great to see the children participating and learning. We ate lunch in... More

I planned a trip to Plimoth Plantation for my whole family (3 grandparents, 3 kids ages 12, 13, and 14), my boyfriend and myself. I thought it would be a great activity for the kids to do around Thanksgiving to really get an understanding of the Pilgrims and Native Americans. I had researched the pricing and saw how expensive it... More

I am very sorry you had a disappointing visit. Our staff is supposed to be on point every day the museum is open, so being the last day is no excuse for your treatment. We take our reviews very seriously. We are planning changes to the program for 2017 to make staff historians more accessible so that every museum guest... More

I visited Plimouth Plantation with my son at Thanksgiving. The Wampanoag village was really interesting. The 16th Century village was absolutely history coming to life for my son. We visited each house and their reenactors in each house that played the part of the actual person who lived there. They answered questions as if you were currently in the 16th... More
