We say a 5 minute video showing us everything there was to do in Jamestown to find out after buying tickets for the settlement that this was not the actual place where Jamestown was, but only a reproduction site. The actual site is a mile away and another entry fee to this area. My children were very disappointed after finding... More

I went here with my boyfriend the day after seeing Colonial Williamsburg. It is much smaller in size. There are three main outdoor areas Native American village, ships, and the fort/settlement. I would recommend seeing the video and walking through the museum first. They are both very informative. The outdoor exhibits are interactive and the actors answer a lot of... More

A Must see!! Rolling back in time was an excellent experience. We bought the Historic Triangle Package for $90, that includes access to Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown & Yorktown for 7 days. Completely worth it. It took us a complete 1 day in each location. Indian Villages, a Fort, 3 Ships..a lot of things to see

I came to this area expecting to love williamsburg and throw in a Jamestown settlement trip on the side. I left feeling opposite. Jamestown settlement was perfect for my young family. We spent most of our time outside and learned a lot about native American life and life in the fort and on the ships. I appreciated that docents were... More

My 8 year old daughter and I set out on a day trip to visit the Jamestown Colony/historic site. Our GPS took us right to the parking lot of Jamestown Settlement, and I did not catch on until the end of our visit there that we should have passed the settlement and gone just a bit further to arrive at...

My family and I recently purchased season passes for Williamsburg, VA and this was one of the stops we made.We had not seen the ships since my son was about 9 years old. It was amazing to walk thru and really get to see them because when you are with a group you don't have a lot of time to... More

If you are traveling to the Williamsburg area, the Jamestown Settlement is our favorite attraction. Lots of demonstrations throughout the day. My son loved going on the three large ships and my husband really enjoyed the Native American village. The staff are engaging and knowledgeable.

This is a great place to see how things looked back when our ancestors came to America . We have arrived around 3PM and there was no crowd. We went straight to the replica of a fort and learned and saw many interesting things . We then went to section were the replica of the ships were located. I couldn't... More

This was an amazing treat. Our guide, "John Rolfe" was so knowledgeable about everything concerning the early settlers and the life and hardships they endured His presentation was given on the banks of the James River beside the fort and he presented the history lesson in great detail. We learned so much and enjoyed touring the entire settlement. Historical markers... More
