We visit here every 3rd or 4th time we go to Williamsburg. There is always something new to see. The reconstructed village is in trouble and needs visitors. Kids will love the persons of the past and watching the artisans and and their crafts.

This is a replica of what a settlement would have been. Was interesting but had thought this had historical elements but did not. Would not go again.

Really nice facility and the displays were interesting for the kids too. Replicas of the sailing ships to climb on, Indian dwellings and Settler houses. Big museum actually, with a lot of very nice artifacts. Well done videos, lots of A/C inside, big gift store...More

This was a really informative and interactive exhibit. We all had a great time and loved asking the re-enactors questions, which they answered in character! Our favorite was the surgeon apprentice.

Great place to learn about the events at Jamestown before you go to the actual site of Jamestown down the street. Fantastic museum, great ship experience and well done Native American village.

Recently went to Jamestown Settlement with the family. Great history lesson. The boat experience is worthwhile. Suggest you not miss this Colonial Williamsburg experience.

We took our teens to Jamestown Settlement and they were surprisingly engaged. Most likely it was because the actors engaged with them, and really took time to answer questions and own their roles. They also loved the ships. This is an affordable way to spend...More

Yes at the Yorktown Battlefield National Park. At Historic Jamestowne, your Sr. park pass will get you in at a very reduced rate. That is where the archeology is happening. The Jamestown Settlement and their sister museum... More

Any of them honestly but the room in the Comfort Suites are easily accessed and the Staff is more then willing to assist you. I would say shop around some.
