    Plimoth Plantation Living Museum Day Trip

    Journey back in time and see how life was for the Pilgrims and Wampanoag American Indians in the 1600s on this day tour to the Plimoth Plantation, a living museum south of Boston in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Interact with costumed actors who reenact the Pilgrims' daily tasks in the English colony and check out a Wampanoag home site that has been recreated alongside the colony. Board the Mayflower II, a replica of the ship that brought the pilgrims to the New World, to complete your trip into colonial America. Travel by air-conditioned luxury coach 45 miles (72 km) south while listening to your professional guide explain the history of Plymouth and the arrival of the first pilgrims on the Mayflower. When you reach Plimouth Plantation, immerse yourself in this living museum where you meet convincing actors who speak old English as they tell you about their daily life in this historically accurate recreation of the small English colony. Watch how the blacksmithing, cooking and farming was done in the early 1600s and feel free to ask questions of the knowledgeable actors.

    At the Wampanoag home site next to the colony, you'll meet American Indians from different nations who demonstrate how the Wampanoag's ancestors lived and talk about how they interacted with the pilgrims. They also tell you about how they live in present day and will answer questions. Don't miss the Craft Center at Plimouth Plantation, where contemporary artisans show the 17th century techniques that American Indians and English colonists used to make tools, pots, headdresses, clothing and furniture. The center aims to preserve the knowledge of these ancient technologies. You'll have free time in to check out the waterfront where you'll find Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower II, a replica of the original ship that the English colonists sailed to Plymouth. Historical actors describe the journey and living conditions aboard the Mayflower during the Atlantic crossing, bringing history to life with vivid detail as you walk about the ship.
