In the 1950s, shipbuilder William Baker designed and built this accurate recreation of the cramped vessel the Pilgrims took from England to the New World. In 1957, the new ship sailed from Plymouth, England to Cape Cod, retracing the original Mayflower journey. Today, it is moored in Plymouth and serves as a living history museum. Tour guides take visitors through the ship, painting a vivid picture of the misery endured by passengers and crew on the 1620 voyage.
It was like stepping back in time, period costumes and voices. History came to life and it was very interesting, a great learning experience. I visited with family and loved it. We will be back soon and bring friends. It was worth the trip and great pictures!
Only historical area in Plymouth, MA.
worth visiting. Other historical areas overpriced
and construction work being done all around you.
People in the various historical areas are not
very friendly and make you feel like you are
envading there lunch hour.
I haven't visited the mayflower II since I was a small girl but I hold fond memories of it. I'm considering going back to see it on a trip with my fiance. If I do I'll see about putting up a pic. It's amazing to see the actuall size of the ship, and I'm sure it will look even smaller as a grown adult!
