Special rates if you visit the boat and Plimoth Plantation on the same day.Get on Board with 102 Pilgrims You'll then realize how crowded it was, not to mention the cows, chickens, goats and other farm animals which had to share the same hold space! Then imagine travelling in mostly bad weather in cramped quarters for 66 days before seeing land again. Getting on board really gave the children and I a sense of what the Pilgrims endured on their journey here. Also onboard are costumed re-enactors who have carefully researched the characters they have taken on. We talked to Elizabeth Winslow who was still alive on March 24, 1621, which is the date aboard ship. We had a chat about her voyage which she declared that i would not so chuse to do again. The re-enactors certainly played their parts convincingly, taking on the dialect of 17th Century Englishmen and spoke of the current events of 1621 liked they happened today. Being onboard a ship with sails was also fascinating. The children felt free to wander aboard exploring every nook and cranny. We were also fortunate that it was the end of the day and it was slightly drizzly (more authentic), so no one else was there and our kids had free reign to explore. The rigging also fascinated them; it really is beautiful in a way our modern ships are not. Also interesting was a display on the dock about how this ship was crafted and gifted to America as a gift from English as a Thank You for American assistance in WWII. The ship is located on the Plymouth waterfront 3 miles from Plimoth Plantation. Definitely worth a stop (budget 45 minutes to an hour) to get a sense of the famous journey aboard ship. The waterfront is also charming and has some cute shops and eateries for a nice pick me up afterward.
