The Plimoth Plantation, ( 62 miles south of Boston), is a living museum where you step back in time to 1627 and visit a Pilgrim settlement and Wampanog Indian Home site where you are free to walk among the Pilgrims and Indians to encounter first hand what life was like in early America almost 400 years ago.
The actors will talk freely about their lives and daily tasks, speaking in the dialect of the time. They, of course, know nothing of such things as clocks, electricity, telephones, television, radios, computers, or any of our modes of modern transportation, which for them was principally by foot or beast of burden.
Another part of the museum is <> Mayflower II <> located in Plymouth Harbor , about 3 miles north of the Plantation . It is an accurate reproduction of the type of ship, which transported the 103 Pilgrims to the new world.
