137 Warren Ave, Plymouth, Boston

The Basics

The Plimoth & Patuxet museum is spread out among three separate sites that all charge separate admission fees: Plimoth & Patuxet, the Mayflower II, and the Plimoth Grist Mill. At the main site, you’ll explore a working English village and meet with historical reenactors, following the Pilgrims’ journey from March through November 1627 and witnessing key moments in their lives during that year. You can also visit the Wampanoag Homesite, a recreation of 17th-century Wampanoag life featuring indigenous interpreters rather than role players.

We loved everything! The Grist Mill was fascinating and the Mayflower was just wonderful. We thought that Plimoth Plantation did really well considering Covid.

We loved our experience there. The actors provided historic context and content. The Mayflower was exceptional. Want to return when the COVID is no longer an issue to see it all.

We had a spectacular fall day with roam in the plantation. Guides were pleasant, knowledgeable, and eager to share information. The gift shoppe was full of period items, food, and trinkets. Well worth the visit

It was a great experience to actually walk through a Wompanoag village and see a native literally making a boat! It was also fun to interact and speak with pilgrims. I learned new things and am so glad I took this tour.

Good mix of history and local sights. Glad to have hotel pickup saving travel to central location in early morning. Bad traffic slowed parts of day-long trip.

If bringing children, educate them, ask the hard questions, try to understand the real dynamics with the natives and the more you know about the history before, the more you will get out of what you are hearing and seeing. They really are passionate about the history. Excellent experience for all ages

The tour guide was very friendly and we saw many special things, could hop on and off the van when we wanted to. All in all, we had a great day!!!

Plimoth & Patuxet is open from mid-March through November, and there are regular seasonal programs, such as corn planting and harvesting. The attraction tends to be more crowded in summer and fall; spring is ideal if you want to avoid the crowds.

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

At the Plymouth Waterfront, home of the Mayflower II, you’ll find “Should I Stay or Should I Go?,” an interactive exhibit that challenges kids and adults alike to play the role of a Pilgrim journeying across the Atlantic Ocean in 1620. You’ll be encouraged to think through the decisions the original colonists faced when considering whether to trek to a new land.
