Interact with an authentic environment and historical interpreters of Pilgrims at Plimoth Plantation, 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 Plantation and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Who knew that the Plimoth Plantation had such beautiful locations for weddings? The family wedding we attended was outside, and the wedding party stood in front of a pond just as the sun was setting. The catered buffet was indoors with elegant selections and lots of room for dancing. The next day we arrived at the Plantation for a farewell brunch. Very good location for weddings. Three locations to choose from.
If I had a word to describe it...Underwhelming. For the steep price of 30$ per person not worth the experience. The few individuals we did encounter were very knowledgeable and stayed in character but some of he individuals did not interact at all or even seemed to avoid us. Quite a bit of construction happening made this experience inauthentic, we were only told of “some minor” construction happening only after we purchased our ticket. We were not informed of this prior to which would allow us to make a decision whether or not to proceed. I’m not sure why this was highly rated but maybe we just went at a bad time, since they are not “in season” and just happen to catch everyone on a bad day. The one thing that was the saving grace of the experience was the fresh bread we purchased.. it was a cranberry pecan bread and fresh cookies!! Delicious. The gentleman working the counter was very nice as well. Everything else was mediocre at best.
