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

Everyone should do the plantation once in their life. Family trip over thanksgiving, the thanksgiving buffet was outstanding! Went back on Friday for the self guided tour. Was by far one of the coolest things we have ever done. The characters knowledge, accents and demeanor made you feel like you were truly transported in time. Was a enjoyable trip for... More

We visited on the last day of the regular season for 2016. It was a beautiful fall day (sunny and about 40 degrees). There weren't a lot of people there and we had a lovely time exploring. My in-laws enjoyed the stories told at the Wampanoag Homesite inside a traditional winter shelter. My favorite was exploring the 17th Century Village.... More

Not so good on Wampanoag history but the staff in the museum are so knowledgeable about the Pilgrims who settled. They use authentic and original sources to speak with you and stay in role perfectly.

We visited on Thanksgiving and the actors were very upfront about the complicated relationship between the colonists and the Native Americans. We learned a lot and it really felt like we had time-traveled.
