Wearing Costumes

Native and Colonial Men in 17th-century clothes at Plimoth Plantation

At Plimoth Plantation, we kindly request that our visitors do not wear "Pilgrim" or "Indian" costumes while visiting the Museum.


Dog and Cat show what not to wearIn the Wampanoag Homesite, the staff are Native People who wear traditional Wampanoag clothing authentic to the 17th century and meaningful to their culture. In our Colonial sites we have costumed role players on staff. Guests in costume cause confusion for people who may not be able to distinguish costumed guests from the Museum staff. Therefore, we kindly ask everyone not to wear historical costume of any kind when visiting us. Thank you!
