Family Overnights in the 17th Century
A unique experience for families and small groups.
You will step into the 17th-century world of Plimoth by dressing in colonial dress and spending the night in a Pilgrim house. Enjoy a personal behind-the-scenes tour of our English Village, help to make a delicious hearth-cooked meal, and play games that the settlers would have enjoyed to experience the sights, sounds, and smells of an evening in early Plimoth Colony!

Where will we be sleeping?
In an authentic 17th-century bed! You will stay in one of our Pilgrim houses in our 17th-Century English Village. Your mattress may be stuffed with straw or feathers. The houses are “earthfast,” meaning the floors are dirt. Walls are made of clay, earth, straw and water, and there are no screens in the windows. There are a limited number of camping cots available for use. You will be able to use a modern bathroom, but there are no showers.
There are alternate sleeping locations available, if you and your family prefer not to sleep in our Pilgrim houses and in case of inclement weather.
There may be other activities at the Museum that evening or other groups staying overnight. All groups have separate sleeping areas and evening activities.
