The Mayflower II returned home to Plymouth, Massachusetts, this week after a major renovation. The ship is a replica of the original Mayflower that brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth Rock in 1620.

The three-year project at the shipyards in Mystic, Connecticut, cost $11.2 million, according to the Boston Globe.

The Mayflower II was a gift from England. Since its arrival in 1957, it has been a major tourist attraction and educational site.

WCVB-TV in Boston filmed the last leg of the ship’s journey to Plymouth. Watch the 28-minute video here. There’s no audio for this video.

The Mayflower II reopened to visitors on August 12.
