Our historical four-site, 7-day value pass will open our guests eyes to an amazing part of American history. Our self-guided, living history museums will tell the story of our nation’s beginnings through film, gallery exhibits with historical interpretation and hands-on fun in our outdoor re-created settings of a Powhatan Indian village. There will also be Expansive gallery exhibits and an introductory film describe the cultures of the Powhatan Indians, Europeans and Africans who converged in 17th-century Virginia, and trace Jamestown’s beginnings in England and the first century of the Virginia colony.
Climb aboard replicas of the three traditional tall-ships that sailed from England to Virginia in 1607. Throughout the outdoor areas, costumed historical interpreters describe and demonstrate daily life in early 17th century Jamestown. Near the site of the original colony, Jamestown Settlement tells the story of 17th-century Virginia; from the arrival of English colonists in Jamestown in 1607 to the cultural encounters and events that planted the seeds of a new nation.
The world of Jamestown, America’s first permanent English colony, comes to life through film, gallery exhibits and outdoor living history. You will also experience historical colonial forts at Jamestown Settlement and at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, then experience a Continental Army encampment and Revolution-era farm.
Feel free to dine at the cafes and shop in museum stores for fun and interesting mementos.
