Did you know that the Pilgrims taught their children reading and writing at home? Did you know that the Wampanoag used the natural world as an outdoor classroom where they could teach life skills? The Museum is an ideal place to let your children explore the past by being curious, interacting with Museum staff, and trying new things.

The Combination Ticket, which includes Plimoth Plantation and Mayflower II, will cost $21 for each adult (normally $29.50) and $13.00 for each child age 6 though 17 (normally $19.00). Children 5 and under are admitted free.
