9AM-5:30PM. A historical farm and educational site renowned among
academic historians and history-recreation buffs alike. Includes a
1627 living history reenactment of early colonial life where
visitors can roam the village, enter the homes, and interact with
colonists who stay in character. If visiting in summer, find a
Plantation employee to describe the various home garden plants and
what they were used for - the explanations are fascinating! There is
also a recreation of a Wampanoag homesite of the period staffed with
interpreters who trace their ancestry to Native tribes, although
they will speak with visitors as themselves rather than as
characters. You can also visit a 17th century craft center and
observe various clothing, candles, pottery, and other items being
made by hand using traditional techniques.
Plimoth Plantation is a historic open air museum
located in Plymouth, Massachusetts off the Route 3A. Plimoth
Plantation is a museum founded in 1947, dedicated to the colony of
Plymouth, which moved to Massachusetts in the seventeenth century
(later becoming the Pilgrim Fathers). In the English Village section
of 1627, the performers are dressed and speak according to their age
and speak to "first-time visitors" in the first person, answer
questions, talk about their lives, their opinions and their views.
Here you can indulge in various activities such as cooking,
planting, ironwork and animal breeding.
History of the Plimoth Plantation
In 1620, the Pilgrim Fathers landed with 101
people on the Mayflower on the coast of today's Massachusetts and
founded the Plymouth Colony. Not far from the coast was her first
This settlement was rebuilt in 1947 as Museum
Plimoth Plantation by the Boston stockbroker Henry Hornblower II.
For this purpose, the village of Pilgrim Fathers was reconstructed
four kilometers from Plymouth according to the time 1627 in a
speculative manner, since no significant traces were obtained. In
this museum village showmen live as in the 17th century, the houses
were rebuilt, animals were reared and even the smallest details were
reconstructed. The performers talk in an English dialect that is far
from the American. This allows visitors to immerse themselves in the
true life of over 350 years ago.
Furthermore, an Indian
settlement of the Wampanoag is part of the museum, in which today's
Indians (not in clothing of the 17th century, but in traditional
clothing) represent and explain the life of their ancestors. These
include the manufacture of boats from tree trunks and the
construction of huts and houses made of bark.
Mayflower II is located at Plymouth Rock, the pilgrim fathers'
abode, and is also a museum. There is also a cinema showing
documentaries about life back then. The archaeologist also opened
the Hornblower Visitor Center in 1987 and the Craft Center in 1992.
In 2013, the Plimoth Grist Mill was added.
