Plimoth Plantation
The Plimoth Plantation is a living history museum that attempts to portray the first colony of English settlers to arrive in the New World in the 1600s. You’ll meet historical reenactors who speak and look the way the Pilgrims did as you explore the faithful recreation of a chapter in American history at a Smithsonian-affiliated museum.

The Basics
The Plimoth Plantation museum is spread out among three separate sites that all charge separate admission fees: the Plimoth Plantation, the Mayflower II, and the Plimoth Grist Mill. At the main plantation 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.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Save money by purchasing your pass in advance—and save even more by bundling it with other area attractions 
  • There are three museum shops, as well as the on-site Patuxet Cafe.
  • Plan to spend about two to three hours exploring this attraction.
  • If you plan to bring a stroller, jogging strollers work best on the terrain.

How to Get There
From Boston, take Route 93 South to Route 3 South. Take exit 4 (Plimoth Plantation Highway) off Route 3. Continue on Plimoth Plantation Highway for 1 mile (1.6 kilometer) and take the exit for the museum. Free parking is available on-site. You can also take the Plymouth & Brockton Commuter Bus, which stops at exit 5 Visitor Center. 

When to Get There
Plimoth Plantation 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. From May to June and October to November, school groups frequently visit; if you visit during these months, plan to start to later in the afternoon.

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.

Always a Favorite. You get out what you put in!

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

A day Back in Time

We had a great fall day exploring. It was great to see both sides of the coin and a clear understanding of the contrasting ways of life between the native tribe and colonists. The actors are a delight and you can see and imagine how hard life must have been and how small colonists felt in a large "new" country. The native people representing and explaining the Wampanoag way of life were informative and welcoming. I really enjoyed learning about their way of life and their connection to the land and animals. I went with a friend, and her son and friend (10yrs) . We spent 3.5 hours at the village and 30-40 minutes at the Gris Mill. (You can buy flower there). A short walk from the Gris Mill is Plimoth Rock, while your local it's a great stop to see this symbol of change on this continent. (no charge) And if you're lucky, like we were, you might catch the very informative history by the DCR ranger.

Took our grandkids. They really enjoyed the Plantation, didn't make it over to the Grist Mill and the Mayflower II still isn't in as it is being restored. We were there 2 years ago and still didn't get to see the Mayflower.
