Plimoth Plantation/Plimoth Grist Mill Combo tickets

Gate Prices Adult $31.00
Child (3-12) $19.95
On 130-acres overlooking Cape Cod Bay, history comes alive at Plimoth Plantation, a must-see New England destination less than an hour south of Boston and minutes from Cape Cod. Staff and exhibits tell the story of 17th-Century Plymouth Colony and its shared history with the Pilgrims and Native People. As part of this tour, you'll also be treated to Plimoth Grist Mill, a working reproduction of the original mill that dates back to Plymouth Colony.

A trip to Plimoth Plantation is like taking a trip back in time. This living museum provides a real look into the lives of the Pilgrims and Native People of the region, exploring the powerful stories of two distinct cultures. Engaging with knowledgeable staff will help you experience this fascinating story first-hand. This active approach to history has earned Plimoth Plantation national acclaim for delivering profoundly personal experiences to guests from around the world.

Plimoth Plantation’s award-winning exhibits include:

Wampanoag Homesite: Step into a wetu (house) surrounded by soft furs, flickering firelight, and woven bulrush mats. Please note that unlike elsewhere in Plimoth Plantation, the people you will meet here are not actors. They are Native People dressed in traditional deerskin clothing. They are happy to answer your questions about anything related to their story or culture, including family life, cooking (you’ll enjoy the scent of sobaheg stew simmering over an aromatic wood fire), traditional plant remedies, and boatbuilding techniques.

17th-Century English Village: This is a historically accurate re-creation of the small farming community built by the colonists adjacent to the Wampanoag Homesite. You will wander through small timber-framed houses and their fragrant gardens, observe livestock, and mingle with the townspeople of Plymouth Colony. The people you will meet here are 17th-century characters and modern-day guides. Ask about religious beliefs, cooking and medicinal habits, and relations to the Native People nearby. The English Village offers unobstructed views of Plymouth Harbor, further lending to the authenticity of the whole experience.

Craft Center: History is in the making at the Craft Center where you will find artisans practicing historical crafts, trades, and domestic skills in a modern setting. You’ll see the making of reproductions of some of the original items that the Pilgrims imported from England such as earthenware pottery, textiles, and candles. Watch the crafting of traditional Native artifacts used today in the Wampanoag Homesite. These artisans are always delighted to share their knowledge and skills while they work. A recent addition to the Craft Center is Plimoth Bread Company—a bakery where guests can learn about 17th-century bread making in a wood-fired clay oven through live demonstrations.

Plimoth Grist Mill: Just 16 years after they arrived on Mayflower, the Pilgrims built a grist mill on Plymouth’s historic Town Brook. Plimoth Grist Mill is a reconstruction of that original 1636 mill, where you can take a fascinating look at the mill’s history and its workings, from the 200-year old millstones grinding corn to the ecology of the brook that has powered mills through the centuries. Talk to our millers and find out why they keep their noses to the grindstone. Be sure to take home some of our freshly stone-ground organic cornmeal. It’s a taste to give thanks for!

As Plimoth Plantation reminds visitors, you can’t change history, but it can change you. Experience an authentic settlement as it stood hundreds of years ago, and let the early history of America as we know it come alive before your eyes. This should be a “must” on any Boston or New England itinerary!

Great Re-enactors

Pros:
FUN LEARNING, Actors in character, Free parking
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Plimoth Plantation & Mayflower II:

It was very interesting watching the re-enactors. You actually get to ask them questions and they will answer as they would in that time period. The re-enactors on the Mayflower II were very entertaining & knowledgeable too. We also enjoyed the waterfront in Plymouth.

Comments about Smart Destinations Plimoth Plantation & Mayflower II:

The plantation was amazing! The reenactor were wonderful and engaging. The experience at the plantation is what you make of it, you have to ask questions. Also, if you don't understand a response tell them and they well explain. Remember they are portraying a different time period, filled with different traditions. All the reenactors stayed in character the whole time and were able to answer every question we asked. It was amazing. Plus, they really make an effort to include children! Not only was it interesting to listen to the people talk, it was also fascinating to watch them complete everyday chores as they would have in 1627. The Wampanoag village was interesting as well. The people there are not reenactors (real people from the Wampanoag tribe) and the majority were very opened and inviting, however a few others seemed less interested and annoyed to be asked questions. That was the only disappointing experience at the plantation. Next, we went to the Mayflower II. That was just as amazing as the plantation. The reeanactors were wonderful! It was a very unique experience. It only takes between 30 minutes to an hour to go through the boat. It is located right next to Plymouth rock!

Comments about Smart Destinations Plimoth Plantation & Mayflower II:

Wonderful living museum. Plymouth colony has been recreated and you get to walk through, talking with the Pilgrim characters (who stay in character) and discovering their way of life. The plantation also has a recreated Wampanoag Native Peoples site, where you can walk about the Natives and ask them questions too. My children, ages 4, 6, and 8 really enjoyed it. Give yourself around 3 hours to see it all. Maybe more if you like to linger.
