Learn Something Old!

Every day we learn something new. Isn't it time to learn something old?

Learn how your family can sleep in a Pilgrim house, how kids can spend a week this summer learning about the Wampanoag, or how you can invite a Pilgrim or Native museum teacher to your classroom. You can even play a fun Thanksgiving activity, or find out if you're related to a Pilgrim.

Look below for all of the great ways you can learn at Plimoth Plantation.
