Story

The original Mayflower that sailed to Plymouth in 1620 no longer exists. Plimoth Plantation’s full-scale reproduction, Mayflower II, was built in Devon, England and crossed the Atlantic in 1957 to Plymouth, Massachusetts, where tens of thousands board this floating classroom and cultural icon each year. Following a three-year restoration, May 2020 marks the return of Mayflower II to Plymouth where it is once again open to the public. Through powerful personal experiences, Plimoth Plantation tells the stories of the Wampanoag people and English colonists who created a new society – in collaboration and in conflict – in the 1600s at historic Patuxet. Located less than an hour’s drive south of Boston, the museum is open daily from mid-March through the end of November (check www.plimoth.org for current hours and exhibits).
