ALL Tours, Sightseeing, Museums & Attractions
In the 17th-Century English Village, talk with costumed role players who portray the Plymouth colonists (popularly known as the "Pilgrims") going about their daily lives in this small, re-created coastal village.
Discover a different perspective at the Wampanoag Homesite, where modern-day Native staff practice and preserve traditional skills and speak about the history and culture of the Wampanoag People.
In the Crafts Center, watch the skilled modern-day artisans as they fashion the period furnishings and clothing used in the 17th-Century English Village. At the Nye Barn, learn about the museum's rare and heritage breed livestock and their importance to global conservation efforts.
On the Plymouth waterfront, climb aboard Mayflower II, fully restored 17th-century sailing vessel that made the famous voyage in 1620. Talk with the first-person living history educators portraying those who sailed on that historic voyage or with modern-maritime staff.
At Plimoth Patuxet, the Shelby Davis Gallery and Visitor Center retail stores remain open until 5:30pm. Davis Gallery exhibits are open until 5:30 pm: We Gather Together - 400th anniversary of Thanksgiving and History in a New Light, Illuminating Archeology: Historic Patuxet and Plymouth
NEW artisan exhibit in the Craft Center: 17th-Century English Apothecary.
Nestled along Town Brook, and just a short walk from the Waterfront, the Plimoth Grist Mill tells the story of the grist (corn grinding) mill built by the Pilgrims in Plymouth Colony. The Mill is a reproduction of the 1636 mill in the original location and was completed in 1970. Many of the parts (the stones, spindle, and stone furiture) are from the early 1800s and were salvaged from a mill near Philadelphia.
In all of these locations, the engaging staff, through attention to detail, and carefully reproduced environments ensure a fun and fascinating visit. Take a step back in history at the Plimoth Patuxet!
