It was incredibly hot when we visited in late June but this was by far our favorite attraction. It is a short walk to the pier where the three ships are moored and we were able to go aboard each one. We couldn't go below deck of one of them as it had just returned from a trip but the... More

Before you even go outside there is a very detailed history lesion to walk through in time order. Gives you a very good idea what you're about to see outside. Remember the actual settlement is nearby but this has been re-built to the era as known. Location is very easy to get to and not very crowded.

My 10yo daughter really liked this and we did too. During school she learned about Pocahontas and the Indian village here was great. She also liked the ships too. She didn't want to leave the ship. We did this in about 2 hours. Had to leave to head back home. Next time we will allow for more time. Plan for... More

What a national treasure. The area visit answered a lot of questions concerning our ancestry and how life began in the new world.

My family and I enjoyed our visit to Jamestown settlement. They have replicas of the 3 ships that made the journey to Jamestown which you can go on and explore. They also have the Fort and Indian village that you can explore. Everyone is very helpful and knowledgable and answered all of our questions. Excellent way to spend the day.

Had a lot of fun touring the settlement, watching the musket demonstration, walking through and reading all the interesting facts, going onboard the ships and try out the bunks, tour guides were very informative,

We visited the historic Jamestowne Settlement and are glad we did. It was neat to see the ORIGINAL site and then this recreation/interpretation. Our toddler liked seeing and exploring the historically accurate ships. As many other reviews say, you don't get the quality of interaction and historical interpretation you get in Colonial Williamsburg but there were still interesting things to... More

Had a nice trip June 2015 and payed for a private tour for my family. The museum is informative and well thought out. The real appeal of the settlement are the reenactments and workers in costume. Unfortunately, the day we went it was pouring down rain, so there were very few period actors out and about. Still, it was informative... More

Well worth the money and loved talking with all the "Indians, Sailors and Fort Soldiers". Great museum with lots of displays and information.
