Facility:Plimoth Plantation
Description:Plimoth Plantation, a bicultural museum, offers powerful personal encounters with history built on thorough research about the Wampanoag People and the Colonial English community in the 1600s. The exhibits, programs, live interpreters, and historic settings encourage a new level of understanding about present-day issues affecting communities around the world.

There is a great deal to see and do at the museum's two locations. Some visitors find that they cannot see everything in one day. Please note that your combination ticket can be used at the Plimoth Plantation location for two consecutive days, and is also good for a third day at Mayflower II within one year of purchase of your ticket.

Always a favorite with our family, the Plymouth Plantation is also a great educational experience! The period actors really know their parts, and it is especially fun to find "people" that you know some history about actually "at home." The day we were there, Miles Standish was in his house, and he showed us what he was working on at the time, and even discussed his home's furnishings (e.g. "the chest belonged to my cousin,"). This added to the authenticity and adventure for our kids. Since our family is related to one of the Mayflower Pilgrims, we found this even more meaningful, even though our "ancestor" was "out hunting"!!! Well worth the money! For the best experience, start down in the harbor at the Mayflower replica.

Absolutely a fantastic day spent learning about life in the early days of our country. My kids loved going back in time to learn about the every day lives of the pilgrims and about the native people of that area as well. I think visiting here at any time of year would be fascinating. We happened to be there the week of Thanksgiving which was special but since it's a living history museum, any time of year is going to be interesting and educational. Make sure to see the Mayflower II while there. The children were amazed at how small it actually was. The gift shop and cafeteria were both quality venues.

This is a must do if you are in the area. You are transported back in time and actually feel like you are living in a different period. You can interact with the people and hear about life long ago.

When we visited we watched a Native American burning out the inside of a log to make a canoe and learned how to cook Native American meals. We viewed the inside of homes and learned about the challenges of the first winter in America.

What a great trip!

What a great way for the kids to see history alive. It is so much better than reading it out of a book. The folks are dressed in period costume and answer in period talk. Be sure to have your camera on hand and wear comfortable shoes. Take lots of pictures and try lap booking them when you get home as a refresher course. Be sure to visit all the great sites in and around the area.
