We hit Colonial Williamsburg earlier in our trip and found it to be too big and unfocused, but Jamestown was spot on. The intro video was a perfect overview of major events and set the stage for what was to come. I've been telling people...More

View the museum exhibits, walk the 'village' (which was actually a couple miles away) and see the recreated smallish village that delivered the original settlers.

A day-long event and very interactive for the children. Second trip there and enjoy it every time. A great on-site cafe for a lunch break. A must see especially if you have children.

This museum did a nice job to expose and introduce visitors to the lifestyles of the indians, as well as the lifestyles of the first English settlers. After seeing and comparing the different cultures, it becomes evident why the first settlers experienced such hardships and...More

Great experience for the kids and the best way to learn some history is to live through it. Our 2y/o was more into the chickens but our 6 year old was very engrossed in the details. Our 4 y/o enjoyed the ships and the games...More

Yes, this is fun but the State of Virginia has made Jamestown into something of a Disney Land version of the real thing.... The interpreters are not in character but wear the garb...the buildings are yes, like a movie set...and the cafeteria is just that...a...More

A good and educational experience. Will take you about 3-4 hours to get through everything. Have a time line showing people, tools, housing for that era. Have a Powhatan Indian village setup with actors/characters that provide information on how they lived. Had 3 replica ships...More

We found Historic Jamestown to be much more interesting, since it is the actual location of the Jamestown settlement, but we don't have children. Jamestown Settlement is more of a theme park. This seems to be an excellent place to bring children since there are...More

Even though some things at this site are re-creations, our family really enjoyed it. There's a short movie, then an extensive, long gallery, then outside there are several locations to see: the Powahatan Village (look for the bald eagles above), the ships, and the Fort....More
