      Plimoth Planation is a living history museum that tells the story of the Plymouth Colony established by the English Pilgrims, as well as looking at its impact on the Native Wampanoag people. Costumed re-enactors go about their everyday business within the impressive reconstructions of the Wampanoag Homesite, 17th-Century English Village, and Grist Mill, and maintain their period roles at all times. This can occasionally make it difficult to get answers to historical questions but guides are also available to help.

      If you go:
      Other facilities include museum shops, craft centre, cinema and a cafe. Plimoth Planation is open 7 days a week from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., throughout Spring, Summer and Fall (see website for precise dates).

        There are some good children's books that feature this living history museum: _Sarah Morton's Day_ and _Samuel Eaton's Day_ , both by Kate Waters (published by Scholastic), and _1621: A New Look at Thanksgiving_ by Catherine O'Neill Grace (published by National Geographic). All three books have many beautiful color photos of the Plantation and of the actors that portray the various people that were in the settlement. These may be children's books, but adults will find the photographs very enlightening.
