A trip to the past right in the heart of America

Plymouth, Massachussets is a historical land with important significance in the formation and development of America.

Only about 10 minutes by car from the city, but when arriving at Plimoth Plantation, the rhythm of life here is completely different: leisurely, peaceful… different from the noise and bustle of America.

Many people who came to the museum were amazed and surprised by an impressive tourism product.

Coming here, visitors will feel like they are going back to the past, when everything has no items related to the present such as lighters, phones, fire extinguishers… Photo: Amusing.

All houses, household appliances, furniture, and production tools are recreated and arranged exactly as they were used 400 years ago.

The actors playing the roles of the people in the village wear authentic 17th century clothes with wide-brimmed hats, floor-length skirts, belts, guns and bullets… All are accurately portrayed down to every detail.

In the village of British immigrants, each homeowner took on the role of a historical figure among those who sailed on the Mayflower ship that docked in America in the past.

The cattle were raised and cared for by actors portraying British immigrants and native people in the 17th century.

Tourists who want to know information about the village have no choice but to have a direct dialogue with those historical figures.

Another interesting thing is that when we come here, we will hear an English accent – but not modern English – but old English, exactly the way people talked to each other 400 years ago.

After many years of operation, Plimoth Plantation is considered one of the most successful living history museum models in the world.
