Plymouth: Plimoth Patuxet Living History Museums

1. Plymouth: Plimoth Patuxet Living History Museums

Journey back to the 17th century at Plimoth Patuxet and experience a unique immersion experience. The main campus includes two living history exhibits (Patuxet Homesite, 17th Century English Village) the Craft Center, Davis Gallery Exhibit in the visitor center, four retail stores, a cafe, and Nye Barn where some of the Rare Breeds animals live in addition to the Village to portray the Pilgrim story. After you view the orientation film in the Henry Hornblower Visitor Center, begin your experience at the historic Patuxet Homesite on the banks of the Eel River where guests learn about the Native peoples who have lived here for over 12,000 years. Learn about the indigenous heritage of the Northeast from contemporary interpreters who discuss the 17th-century life-ways of a culture that continues to thrive today. Following the path, your next stop is the Craft Center where you will meet Plimoth artisans reviving historic crafts. Restrooms and refreshments are available here. Then, proceed to the 17th-Century English Village, a journey 400 years back in time. Plymouth Colony comes to life in a recreation of the early English Pilgrim settlement, complete with timber-framer houses furnished with reproductions of the types of objects that the Pilgrims owned, aromatic kitchen gardens and heritage breed livestock. Historical performers, portraying real people who lived in Plymouth Colony, will educate and captivate with stories of the Mayflower's crossing, life among the Pokanoket and other nearby Native people. Help with chores, learn a dance, sing a song, or serve in the militia drill under Captain Standish's watchful eye. Back in the Henry Hornblower Visitor Center, you will find Plentiful Café, where a wide selection of culinary treats from history, including Wampanoag and pilgrim foods, can be found. Try a 17th-century recipe cheesecake or the sensational Indian pudding. Upgrade to a Combo Ticket or Heritage Pass to include a visit to Mayflower II or/and Plimoth Grist Mill. The iconic Mayflower II is docked on Plymouth's historic waterfront and welcomes visitors to climb aboard and experience what the 1620 crossing was like for the Pilgrims. Plimoth Grist Mill is a working mill on the original site of the Plymouth colony, within walking distance of the Plymouth waterfront and downtown, and approximately 2.5 miles north of Plimoth Patuxet. Journey back in time to the first water-power-driven grist mill in the country still in operation.

My two kids, my father & myself all had the BEST time at the Zoo! We are on vacation from Maine & this was the perfect day adventure for my kiddos! The animals were gorgeous and we were able to find our way around easily! We will definitely be back again on our next trip here ♥️

The zoo was a wonderful experience - there were lots of animals that my boyfriend and I had never seen before even in other zoos. It was large and there was a variety of exhibits. Very worth the price as you can stay as long as you want (from opening to close)!

Great characterization of early life in Plymouth both indigenous people and European settlers. Good for age levels of second grade and above.

Loved it! It was like taking a walk back in time. It was fun to hear the banter between the village folks.

Very thoughtful and sensitive presentation off history.
