Highlights

In 2020, Plimoth Plantation will commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower voyage, founding of New England’s Plymouth Colony, and the history & relationship with the Wampanoag people who have lived here for 12,000 years. A visit to Plimoth is a unique opportunity to experience history first-hand through the stories and demonstrations of the Indigenous people and the Pilgrim interpreters.

Plimoth welcomes home the newly restored Mayflower on May 21st after a multi-year restoration project. A new exhibit at the dockside will offer information for all ages to the first government document signed by the Pilgrims, The Mayflower Compact and one of the founding documents of the U.S. Constitution.

Located south of Boston, the Museum features three outdoor exhibits: Plimoth (Wampanoag Homesite, 17th-Century English Village, Craft Center), Mayflower, and Plimoth Grist Mill, all within a short drive from one another in Plymouth, MA.

About This Deal

Visit: Plimoth Plantation, 137 Warren Ave, Plymouth, MA 02360-2436

Plimoth (the main campus) includes the outdoor exhibits Wampanoag Homesite, 17th-Century English Village, Craft Center and the Henry Hornblower Visitor Center with a theater, exhibit gallery, gift stores and a cafe with tastings of 17th-century colonial and Wampanoag food, and modern delights.

You may select to visit this location on the same day or a different day from the other two exhibits. See Pricing for admission details.

Plimoth Plantation is the centerpiece of the outdoor museum, with a 17th-Century English village, Wampanog homesite, craft center, Nye Barn and visitor's center. All are located on the same property.

At the 17th-Century English village, travel back to the year 1627! Costumed actors answer questions in character, and inform guests of the Pilgrims difficult beginnings in the colony. See live demos on blacksmithing, farming and cooking in the village.

Next to the Village, you’ll find the Wampanoag Homesite and meet people who explain the history and culture of the Wampanoag people.

Contemporary artisans share 17th-century techniques for making tools, native and colonial clothing, and furniture at the Craft Center. Nye Barn gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the plantation’s rare heritage breeds of sheep, cows and goats.

Mayflower II is unavailable as it is away for preservation until May 2019

Head to the waterfront to see Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower II, a detailed reproduction of the ship that the English colonists sailed to Plymouth. Walk about the ship and meet historical characters who describe living conditions on the journey across the Atlantic Ocean. See the passengers’ cramped quarters, peer into the hold where the goods were stored, and compare the spacious Master’s cabin to the confined sailors’ accommodations.

Plimoth Grist Mill

A short walk from the Mayflower II takes you to the Plimoth Grist Mill, where you’ll see the grist (corn grinding) mill for the Plymouth Colony. For more than a decade, the Pilgrims ground their corn by hand, until the colony constructed this water-powered mill on Town Brook. The mill is a reproduction of the colonist’s mill; many parts were salvaged from an early 1800s mill near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The mill still operates twice a week and visitors are welcome to watch the process.

Duration: 2 hours

Located in historic downtown Plymouth, a short walk from the waterfront, the Plimoth Grist Mill is a fully working reconstruction of the original mill built by the Pilgrims on the same site in 1636. Exhibits explore science, history, technology and ecology. In the spring, see the annual Herring Run and learn about the herrings' significance to the Wampanoag and Pilgrim story.
