Explore another world in another time by taking a journey south from Boston to historic Plimoth Plantation where you will become part of the Pilgrims' 17th century world.

In this living museum, accompany Pilgrims as they go about their daily tasks - talk with them, ask about their lives and what it was like to come to this foreign place to build their future. Visit the home of Hobbamock, the Pokanoket Wampanoag Indian who lived next to the plantation and provided guidance and counsel to the pilgrims.

Highlights include the 17th-Century English Village, Wampanoag Homesite, artisan Craft Center and Nye Barn, along with a cafe and three retail stores.

Time is provided to explore on your own at the waterfront area. You will also have the opportunity to view the Plymouth Rock, Brewster Gardens, Mayflower II (admission included) or climb Cole's Hill.

Guests should wear comfortable shoes, drink lots of water and protect themselves from the sun.

How difficult is it to get around?

Site maps highlighting the most accessible routes are available by request on-site. Mayflower II is not accessible to wheelchairs. Some areas of the mill are not accessible by wheelchairs.

Are there places to sit throughout Plimoth Plantation?

The grist mill also provides some areas where seating is available.

What should I wear during my visit?
Coastal New England weather is highly changeable. It is a good idea to bring water, sunscreen, and a brimmed hat for hot and sunny days. For cold or wet days, bring rain jackets, an extra sweatshirt, umbrellas and comfortable waterproof shoes.

May I buy 17th-century food?

May I visit the museum dressed as a "Pilgrim" or an "Indian?"
Guests in costume cause confusion for other visitors who may not be able to distinguish the costumed guest from the interpretive staff. Therefore, the Plantation asks that you do not wear costumes while visiting. Also, many Native People consider it a sign of disrespect that those not of their Native communities and nations wear traditional indigenous dress.

Are Mayflower II, Plimoth Plantation and the grist mill within walking distance of one another?
No. It is not advisable for guests to attempt walking between the sites, as the distance between each location is several miles. It’s best to make the short drives by car or use public transportation. Parking is available at or near each location.

Are all the staff I meet going to be role playing?
