Plimoth Patuxet Museums has reimagined and redesigned "You Are the Historian: Investigating the First Thanksgiving," its popular interactive game that has entertained school-aged children and families for almost two decades! The game investigates the interactions between the Wampanoag people of Patuxet and colonists of Plymouth, known as the Pilgrims, through archaeological artifacts from the museum’s collections, primary source documents, and oral histories.

"You Are The Historian" transports players to Patuxet and immerses them in a story of cultural change and persistence over 12,000 years. Warning! Magical time travel, an anonymous tipster, mysterious riddles, historic artifacts and mind-bending activities are just ahead. Do you have what it takes to uncover the true history of Thanksgiving?
