I loved seeing all the old artifacts and loved touring the old ship. Dont just view the museum also walk the trails and see the old canons and the view of the river.

There's plenty of room to let children run around and educational markers and historical pountscifvinterestvforvolder children and families. The whole area has good food, historical buildings, York Riverfront, adjacent to the excellent visitor's Center where extremely knowledgeable staff present thorough and interesting presentations with interactive maps and historical displays of original Army tents, ship replicas, climbing ship and more.

The driving tour through Yorktown Battlefield is excellent! Very well marked! Arrow signs lead you to each marker along the route. We learned so much about this great battle and enjoyed the leisurely drive. I pulled up to each marker and had my teenage son read them. He pointed out the spots & got out to walk around at several... More

If you are into battles and why they happened and the sort this is a good stop. There is also a driving tour and several stops. But if you're not into that stuff it's just a lot of green hills and some cannons HOWEVER there are some cool things to see in the small museum inside. You do need to... More

How can you not love this place! Just imagining what took place here is enough to make it worth the visit. The museum and guided tour are great. The place where freedom was finally won for our nation. Sacred ground for sure. A must see for every American! Can't wait for a return visit.

We were on the way to Virginia Beach for meetings, so only had about 2 hours to visit, but managed to see enough to make it worthwhile. Did the Visitor Center movie and museum first; lady at the counter was helpful and we drove the shorter auto your route with the map and signs. It was cold and sunny, got... More

...back to the time when people died for the freedoms we enjoy now. It was emotional looking out over the battlefield where hundreds died so that we could live free.

The museum at the Yorktown Battlefield Visitor's Center is a must do. There is so much interesting history and artifacts to see. It's self guided and you can take your time. There is a lot of reading in the museum and I would plan to give an hour of your time just here. As for the driving tour of the... More

On our two month trip around the USA, we were always impressed by the quality of presentations and tours given by National Park rangers. They do an excellent job, and that was also the case here at Yorktown. It was really interesting to hear a description of the battle and its background, and then to be able to step out... More
