Where are we going today?

What is is that they say....you can't change history but it can change you?

Plimoth Plantation is a fascinating and exciting, hands-on historical adventure where the whole family can step back in time and experience the lives of the 17th century pilgrims who lived in Plymouth.

Are you excited to hear what you can see and do at the Plimoth Plantation!? We're excited to tell you!

The 17th century English Village welcomes you to the year 1627! This fun re-creations of a small faming and maritime community which was built by the Pilgrims is a great way for kids to learn about history. The village is set just 7 years aged the arrival of the Mayflower, and it brings the colonial Plymouth to life.

Can you imagine all these activities happening right where you are standing, all those years ago? All the stories that they must have? The homes are furnished with reproductions of the kind of objects that the Pilgrims would have owned, as well as gardens and livestock. Of course, the townspeople are eager to tell you all about their new lives in the Plymouth Colony!

All of the people that the kids will meet in costume are actually portraying real residents who actually lived in the colony. Every person has a unique story to tell, and some of their comments and habits may even shock you!

The Craft Center gives the whole family a glimpse into the historic techniques and crafts that were used to bring the Museum to life - an amazing behind the scenes look into how the 17th century was re-created!

17th century practices and tools are shown so you can really gain a better understanding of not only what life was life, but how it was done!

Ever wanted to experience the Mayflower? Well, the original that landed in 1620 no longer exists, but the Plimoth Plantation has a full scale replica which is just as impressive! All of the details on the ship have been carefully recreated, so it will just be like you are actually experiencing the real Mayflower!

    We had visited the Plantation 4 years ago in April. Lots of activity, many residents telling us all about both the Native American village and the pilgrim settlement.
    We raved about it to our son and his friend and talked them into going with us. We toured on July 13, 2014. Not sure if many residents were on vacation or what, but there was very little activity, like pulling teeth getting information about all the activities and instruments and tools that the Native Americans used (our last visit was a wealth of information). The Pilgrims were...Read More

    Dropped off my international visitors there yesterday, Sunday afternoon, and they saw very little to no animals and one pottery demonstrator. My family of four were very disappointed they wasted $102.00 :(((

    Long wait for very bad food. $75 for a dream catcher made of twigs. All in all the only thing I like there was the native american part everything else was a tourist trap

    Edutainment at its best. The native Americans are very candid in their discussions, but keeping age appropriate based on the audience. The actors in the village are first rate, not being from character as they carry out real village labors. Unfortunately the Mayflower II was under repairs during the sooner of 2013. I'm sure it's similarly interesting.

Not sure if many residents were on vacation or what, but there was very little activity, like pulling teeth getting information about all the activities and instruments and tools that the Native Americans used (our last visit was a wealth of information). The Pilgrims were a little better, but no blacksmith activity, no builders at work, nothing going on. Very disappointing after our exciting description of our first visit. I doubt our son and his friends will ever go back.
