As custodian and interpreter of the region’s extensive public transportation networks, the Museum strives to share, through its public programs, this rich and vibrant history with local, regional, and international audiences.

The New York Transit Museum’s galleries feature popular exhibits such as Steel, Stone, and Backbone, which recounts the tale of building New York City’s 100 year-old subway system, and many highly interactive exhibitions such as On The Streets, an in-depth look at New York City’s trolleys and buses. Also of interest are the museum’s age-appropriate education workshops and computer resource center.

The New York Transit Museum operates a gallery annex in Grand Central Terminal that presents changing exhibitions. The gallery annex is located just off the Main Concourse in the Shuttle Passage, next to the Station Master’s office. Please go to What’s New on this web site for information on the gallery annex’s current exhibition.

Plimoth Plantation.jpg
137 Warren Avenue, Plymouth, MA, United States

Family Field Trips at Plimoth Plantation offer a fascinating and personal look at the lives of the Native Wampanoag People and the Pilgrims, the English who lived in early Plymouth Colony. In addition to a self-guided Museum tour, School groups have a number of options for tailoring their visit. School Groups with a specific interest, such as early gardens, period cookery, colonial religion, Native culture, timber-frame construction, or navigation, may book a speaker through our Professional Speakers Bureau or a Guided Tour.

Our historical theme dining turns what might otherwise be just another restaurant meal into a memorable (and tasty!) addition to your visit. We offer themed meals with Pilgrim and or Native hosts, and lunch or dinner with food historians who will teach you just how Miles Standish ate his dinner without a fork. For more about historical or modern-day dining opportunities, go to our Dining page.

[showhide type="typeA" more_text="Family Trips and Programs- Click Here" less_text="Hide Information" hidden="yes"]

The staff at the Henry Hornblower II Visitor Center welcome you to Plimoth Plantation. Purchase tickets or membership here, then view the orientation film produced for Plimoth Plantation by the History Channel. This prepares you for the unique experience of visiting our outdoor living history sites, which tell the compelling story of the Pilgrims and the Native Wampanoag people.

Plimoth Plantation museum shops

The Visitor Center houses our Museum Shops that offer a range of products from one-of a-kind Native art and jewelry, to children’s toys and books, specialty foods and an array of items made in New England.

Also in the Visitor Center you can visit the Shelby Cullom Davis Gallery and the Family Discovery Center, where fun is driven by imagination as children can try on Colonial clothes, play Native games and raise the flag aboard the shallop. The gallery also featuresGirl Playing in the Family Discovery Center at Plimoth Plantation

Thanksgiving: Memory, Myth and Meaning, a self-guided exhibit which tells the story about the 1621 events that continue to inspire America’s annual Thanksgiving holiday.

Our quick-service restaurant, Patuxet Café,features menu items adapted from both the Colonial English and Native cultures, as well as the more familiar modern snacks and meals to please diners of all ages and palates. Enjoy your meal in our spacious dining room, or when weather permits, take your food outside to the courtyard, or have a picnic on the lawn that overlooks a beautiful view of the Eel River and Cape Cod Bay.

Designed by architect Graham Gund, the Hornblower Visitor Center is also available for functions. It’s the perfect setting for your wedding, party or conference. Classrooms on the second floor accommodate education programs, workshops, business meetings and dining for small groups. In our theaters we show first-run, independent and foreign films daily in late afternoon and evening.

In the winter months, when our outdoor exhibits are closed, the Visitor Center is still a lively place where we host the Plymouth Winter Farmers’ Market and other activities and programs as announced on our calendar.

Discovery Center

Where do young children go to have fun and learn more about how the Pilgrims and Wampanoag lived in Colonial times? The Family Discovery Station – where imagination creates the experience!

Here, children get to try on Colonial clothes, pretend to cook in a hearth, and learn how Pilgrim children ate their meals off of trenchers without using a fork. Discover how the Wampanoag built their homes and grew many types of vegetables before the Pilgrims settled here. Do you think catching fish is easy? Learn how the Wampanoag built a weir (a fence made of brush) to trap fish in a river.

Climb aboard the shallop (a small boat), raise the flag, and chart your course on a traverse board (a wooden board used in navigation), just like the one used by the sailors aboard the Mayflower to keep track of their course and speed at sea.

Everything in the Family Discovery Station is designed for children to touch, try on, play with and experience, including games and a puppet theater. And be sure to check the daily activity board for a story hour. The Family Discovery Station is a great way for young children to journey back in time.

Programs For Families

Plimoth Plantation offers lots of special activities for kids and families – you can experience the past hands-on when you are here!

Girls make Wampanoag pottery

During school vacations, you can always choose from a variety of Wampanoag (Native) and Pilgrim (Colonial) activities. During the summer, we have week-long day programs called Summer Adventures!

If you are looking for something fun to do with your friends (like a special birthday party), bring them here overnight. You will enjoy an evening of activities (Wampanoag or Pilgrim) here at the Museum, (including dinner) spend the night in the Hornblower Visitor Center, and visit Plimoth Plantation for two days!

Your family could have an even more special family overnight experience, living as a Colonial family wearing authentic clothing, cooking supper over the hearth, and sleeping in one of our Pilgrim homes!

We have lots of online activities for kids, including a special Interactive Thanksgiving Activity called You Are the Historian: Investigating the First Thanksgiving.

Family Overnights in the 17th Century

Looking for a very special overnight experience with your family or friends? Sleep in the 17th Century at Plimoth Plantation, or Sleep onMayflower II in Plymouth Harbor!

Sleep Like the Pilgrims

Come to visit our fun and educational living history exhibit sites early in the day, then join us in the afternoon to begin your Pilgrim experience. As English Colonists, you will be provided with authentic reproduction Colonial clothing. After you are dressed, you will begin experiencing the fun and the work of the 17th century!

Play games, write with a quill pen, even learn a song or a dance if you’d like! Activities will be tailored to your particular interests. Gather wood and get ready to set a fire, because…

Sleep overnight as a Pilgrim at Plimoth Plantation

…you will assist in preparing a hearth-cooked meal in our reproduction Colonial homes on our Colonial Education Site. Here, you’ll eat “supper” and spend the night, sleeping in authentic beds by a warm hearth. (The homes in our Education site were originally built by the Museum’s skilled artisans at a location on the coast of Maine, for the PBS-TV reality seriesColonial House. After the series ended, we dismantled the homes and reconstructed them at our Colonial Education site.)

A Museum teacher will teach you all you need to know, and will sleep nearby. Your group will have the privacy of the home to yourselves all night. In the morning, your teacher will bring you a continental breakfast (yes, with coffee — although the Colonists in the 1620s had only water…)

Sleep overnight as a Pilgrim at Plimoth Plantation

Join us for this magical, unforgettable experience.

Cost: $1000 for up to six people.

For more information, or to reserve a program, call us at (508) 503-2653 or email groupsales@plimoth.org, or make an online reservation request.

Sleep on Mayflower II 

Rowing the ship's boat at Mayflower II

Yes, you read it correctly! You and your family or friends can spend the night on our full-scale reproduction of Mayflower, the well-known ship which brought the English Colonists to the shores of New England.  Mayflower II is docked in downtown Plymouth, at the same location the Pilgrims chose to build their first homes in 1620. All of our entertaining and educational living history exhibit sites will be available for you to visit both days of your stay.

After the rest of the visitors have left for the day, the ship is yours. You could row the shallop in the harbor, make a model of the ship to take home, learn to tie the knots the sailors would have used in 1620, or even try the foods the Pilgrims would have eaten on their way here from England! If that doesn’t sound like an ideal meal, don’t worry — we will provide a 21st-century meal, too! Spend your time with Museum teachers and marine artisans, who can teach you all you want to know about the Pilgrims’ 17th-century journey, and the journey of Mayflower II, which sailed here from England in 1957. The conversations and activities will be tailored to the interests and needs of your family and friends.

If you have the inclination, the decks always need to be swabbed. You may just have enough energy to explore the many decks of the ship, and then choose which one will be the place you make your bed for the night. Watching the sun set behind the masts and rigging of the ship is spectacular, but not outdone by the glow of the sun rising over historic Plymouth.

Please join us for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

For more information about cost and availability, or to reserve a program, call us at (508) 503-2653 or email groupsales@plimoth.org.
