Plimoth & Patuxet

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.

This visit gave me a visual understanding of the Pilgrims and Pautuxets. The historian at the Patuxent wigwam was quite hostile to the Pilgrims but that is common to hate your own country.

The plantation was amazing and we loved the people dressed in genuine clothing who provided great information. The Mayflower was interesting but the Grist Mill was less interesting to us.

My favorite part was visiting the Mayflower II and seeing the details of the ship. Also seeing Plymouth Rock and walking around the town. I like that the workers were in period dress for the added touch of history.

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.
