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.

The coast was beautiful...

Boston to Plymouth Day-Trip with Plimoth Plantation, Mayflower II, Plymouth Rock
The coast was beautiful and the history along the way was interesting. I would recommend this tour but I would have preferred going in reserve. Driving straight to Plymouth so we could see John Adams house on the way back. We were only able to view the gardens.

Great Trip to Plymouth

Boston to Plymouth Day-Trip with Plimoth Plantation, Mayflower II, Plymouth Rock
Our family, parents and child, loved this bus trip! We enjoyed the narration as our tour guide and driver Kristin took us through quaint New England towns along the way. We were glad that we got to see and do so much with the various stops. We only wish we could have had time to explore more of Plymouth after seeing the Mayflower. The slow service at the lunch spot we chose took too much of the time. We highly recommend this trip.

Plimoth Patuxet, Mayflower II or Plimoth Grist Mill Combo Admission Ticket
The reenactors were wonderful! Although it was a grey day and misting, they played their roles to the hilt, especially "John." The gift shop had a nice variety of items, and the animals were lovely. We enjoyed the village and the Native American demonstrations. We were especially interested in the medicinal herb section.

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.
