PLIMOTH PLANTATION

Have a great time, in another time! Plimoth Plantation is a must-see New England destination. Their staff and exhibits tell the story of 17th-century Plymouth Colony and the shared history of the Pilgrims and Native People.

 

Plymouth Colony comes to life in their re-creation of early Plymouth. You'll encounter 17th-century "residents" in historical clothing expressing their hopes, fears and viewpoints. Modern-day guides will help you better understand the 1600s. Help weed the garden, prepare a meal, participate in a muster drill, or play a Pilgrim game!

Located on the Eel River, the Wampanoag Homesite is where guests learn about the native peoples who have lived here for over 10,000 years. Native staff dressed in historical clothing share their traditions, technologies, and culture from a modern perspective. Step inside a wetu (house) or mishoon (dug-out canoe), ask about gardening and cooking methods, and take part in pastimes like a hubbub, a traditional native game.

Popular Burial Hill History Tour Series Returns!

Pilgrim Hall Museum and the Plymouth Antiquarian Society announce their continuing partnership in a free public tour series of Plymouth’s historic Burial Hill for the 2022 season. This year, we are returning to a live, in-person format for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic! A series of four themed history tours will be offered in person at Plymouth’s ancient burying ground at 1 p.m. on the first Saturday of every other month from April to October. The event will not be simultaneously streamed or broadcast live; however, an enhanced and audio-corrected digital version of each tour will premiere online the month following each live event. Visit pilgrimhall.org or plymouthantiquarian.org to enjoy the series.

The collaborative Burial Hill tour program was originally launched in 2011 as a monthly event and grew in popularity, regularly drawing audiences of 80 to 100 people. During COVID, the series transitioned to a virtual format. We are delighted to return to in-person tours after two years of remote programming. The partnering organizations also welcome the opportunity to share these live experiences in high-quality video presentations with additional content for audiences everywhere to enjoy post-event.
