I liked this museum! I think it's definitely geared more towards kids and honestly it felt like it could've been...more... somehow. But it was a nice day and I enjoyed myself. Worth a visit.


I was here probably over 30 years ago. Revisited with my grandchildren. My 9 year old loved it.. The 6 year old didn't have the same interest. Staff was very accomodating for my daughter in law on crutches and knee scooter. They had a golf cart to bring us to each area. The man who drove us was very nice.. Took good care of us. We spent a nice couple of hours there, had lunch in their cafeteria, and bought some souveniers for the kids.


The experience was okay but not as interactive as I had hoped. I would have liked the actors to have engaged us a little more.


Beautiful experience- highly recommend! Knowledgeable and engaging employees to ensure a great experience.


A great experience for the whole family. Their assistance in getting from one location to another with a golf cart was helpful for us.


Wow! we loved this day spent at Plimoth and seeing the settlement and the Mayflower. The employees were very accommodating for my husband who could not handle the trails and hills. I am in a wheelchair and was able to get my wheelchair around the paths. It was educational for the children who was able to really get a feel of how the settlers lived. We would recommend this to anyone!


This is a great interactive exhibit. The houses and structures were so authentic to the period and a joy to look at. The staff members were so helpful and enthusiastic. The park is a bit larger than I expected, but this is a good thing because there was more room for more stuff to look at.


This was a great experience.the Indian hut and how they lived was awesome. The English homes were a great experience. History of all natives and pilgrims are so important. I love it all


Speaking with period people. Seeing how the pilgrims lived. Helpful guides. So much history presented very well.


The museum and activities are all nicely done and engaging for all ages. The staff were great to engage and get a feel for the history especially for kids. Great spot for learning about the history of the time. Try to avoid days with field trips though.
