Our granddaughters enjoyed visiting the open air museum and seeing how the earliest colonists and the native tribespeople lived. Well worth a visit.

The plantation is split into 2 distinct sections, the English settlement set in 1620's and the Wampanoag village. We were looking forward to visiting, and it exceeded our expectations! We especially enjoyed the Wampanoag section. I had encouraged our kids to come up with some questions that they could ask and I think that helped get them into it! We... More

I have traveled to many living history sites and I would rate the character interpreters here among the best I have ever seen. As you work your way through the plantation they really help make the period come alive. All are extremely knowledgeable and well able to interact with visitors whatever their age or level of historical knowledge. The village... More

Can't say enough about a living history museum like Plimoth Plantation. We were there about 7 years about when our kids were 2-10 years old and I thoroughly enjoyed it then especially as a homeschooling mom. But our younger ones didn't really remember it so we went back last week. We'd been to Jamestown Colony a few years ago and... More

The visitor sees how both native Americans and English settlers lived in the 17th century, and can interact with actors living the parts of the early settlers as well as with real Indian people.

They spent millions on new buildings but neglect the real attraction. The area is run down and neglected where the pilgrims lived. The wedding and function halls are great. That is where they spent the non profit money. Curators in old houses were excellent. The highlight worth seeing

The pilgrim reenactors are absolutely terrific. They know their stuff and stay in character. So if you have a genuine interest in history and make time to speak with each one (there were four pilgrim actors during our visit on a Monday in April) you can get your 28 dollars worth. The village/plantation itself is ho-hum. I assume there's more... More

We visited this attraction during our last afternoon before flying back to the UK. We had 2 hours there but it really needs longer than that to get the best out of it. The replica Wampanoag and English Pilgrim settlements are accurate and give an authentic feel of what life must have been like. The guides staying in character make... More
