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.

The tour guide was extremely personable, while knowledgeable about the history of the area. We took the tour 3 years ago and this guide showed much more of the area than before.

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.

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.
