Thousands of educators and students visit Plimoth Patuxet annually.
Are you ready to discover history in a new light?
You are about to enter the world of the people—both Indigenous and colonial—who lived, loved, worked, and built communities along these shores in the 1600s. We recover and preserve lost stories of the past in order to understand our shared human history. We give voice to forgotten 17th-century lives and honor the ancestors by studying and trying to represent their experiences as accurately as possible.
Did you know that the Pilgrims taught their children reading and writing at home? Or that the Wampanoag used the natural world as an outdoor classroom where they could teach children life skills?
