Parking & Accessibility
We offer free parking at Plimoth Plantation. For guests arriving in cars, please park in the main parking lot. It is the first parking lot you'll come to if you enter the campus from Route 3A.
Guests with official disabled or handicap placards or license plates should park in the lower parking lot; following signs for "Bus & Handicapped Parking." Please park in the spaces where there is an international symbol of access (wheelchair symbol).
When visiting Mayflower II, there is metered parking available along the Plymouth waterfront. See our Directions page for details.
Golf Cart Transport Assistance
We offer daily ride assistance from 9:30 am- 4:30 pm for our guests with mobility issues. One of volunteer driving staff will help those who need assistance by transporting (up to 5 at one time) guests in our 6 seat golf cart on the pathways between the different sites at Plimoth Plantation. Once you arrive at each site you will need to travel under your own power. When you are ready to move on to the next site you may either use your cell phone to call for assistance or ask any site staff member to call the cart for you. This free service is offered on a first call first serve basis throughout the day. On busy visitation days there may be extended wait times while our one cart is assisting other guests.
Plimoth Plantation does not offer wheelchairs or strollers for rent. We suggest each guests bring any personal transportation with them.
Welcome! Plimoth is a large outdoor museum with exhibits spread out over 40 acres. While many of the re-created 17th-century buildings are accessible to our guests in wheelchairs, some of the pathways in between can be difficult. These pathways are for the most part unpaved (dirt or sand) and some have steep grades. Due to these conditions some paths are currently not accessible by wheelchairs.
Please understand that a variety of factors such as weather conditions, the type of wheelchair that you are using and whether or not you have someone to assist you will determine how accessible you find these pathways. Speak with a staff person at the Visitor Center regarding your particular needs. While many people with mobility disabilities are able to take advantage of all of our sites, in some instances, we will recommend that guests instead take advantage of the programs and exhibits offered in the Visitor Center.
At Plimoth Plantation, we are working hard to provide improved access for all of our guests. We have already re-graded and stabilized the surface of most of our pathways. Over the next few years we will continue to make further improvements. Please contact our guest services department at 508-746-1622 (ext 8336)or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Site maps highlighting the most accessible routes are available by request at Guest Services. Please note, Mayflower II is not accessible to wheelchairs.
