Always like this site and the walk past the earthen fortifications to the stage is fun. Like most places, the Visitor Center and shop is closed due to the Pandemic. Even if you have a mask. Short walk to the excellent Elizabethan Gardens as well.

This was another enthralling national historic site. It's actually historic for many different reasons. It was military, an underground railroad stop, involved in the beginning of radio, and of course, the lost colony, also the name of the movie we watched. My boys did the junior ranger program, which is for ages 4-6, 7-11, and 12+. It's a rather small building, but stuffed full of information.

Everything is a reconstruction here. But is is still probably helpful to visit the site with educational purposes. The walk through the area is pleasant anyway.

Beautiful site with tasteful/informative displays. Started our tour with a 15 min movie then moved through the displays in another 15 min. As with all NPS sites, we learned a lot and left content that our tax dollars are being well spent. Recommendation: plan to stay for at least two hours and take advantage of the walking trails and more. We were in a hurry and thus will have to return, esp to watch the summertime open air dramatic production.

There is a very small area with artifacts, a gift shop and you can watch a 17 minute video about the Lost Colony. After that you can go out and see the earthen fort and walk around the grounds.
