I found a visit here far more enjoyable and informative than any I have had to Jamestown. It is truly a..." gem.

We were greeted by interpreters eager to share a wealth of information about the site and founding of Virginia. They are in period costume but speak in mondern English making them fun and informative without needing to decipher an older English. It's well worth the drive. I would love to go back on a Saturday when more interpreters are there, but it was great to have fewer people around so that we could spend more time asking questions. If you have kids, go on Saturday and let them explore and ask questions to their heart's content!
