Create an itinerary including Plimoth Patuxet Museums
Interact with an authentic environment and historical interpreters of Pilgrims at Plimoth Patuxet Museums, a living museum based and located on the first Plymouth colony. English Colonists originally established the settlement in the 17th century, and now the same grounds host this multifaceted museum. Witness everyday life in the 1627 English Village section of the museum, where the "townspeople" dress, speak, and behave like 17th-century Pilgrims. You also can explore a replica of the Mayflower II, watch a film at the museum's cinema, see craftsmen at work, and learn about Native American history in the region at the Wampanoag Homesite. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Plymouth holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Plimoth Patuxet Museums and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • I enjoyed the replicas of the houses built at the time. Had an ancestor come over on the Mayflower and it was neat seeing a home that was.modeled after one he made. The Indian Village was interesting as well to see how they farmed and lived during the time. Also, they have an employee available with a golf cart to take you from one area to another if needed! Very handy.
  • A little pricey, but definitely a unique experience! If your party is visiting during the week, I recommend going at an “after school time” to avoid hundreds of field trip kiddos from school/camps! You’ll definitely be able to interact with the staff and learn more during your visit. Be sure to allocate enough time to really explore everything the site has to offer, and go in/out of every building. All the artifacts you see, although replicas, provide you with an insight into the way people thought and worked during this time of history.
