We have been following George Washington all over. We have been to the Princeton and Trenton landmarks as well as Mount Vernon. With tickets to see Hamilton on Broadway I thought Yorktown would be a great addition. While we came in a very hot time...More

We did the Jamestown settlement and Yorktown (American Revolution Museum) combo ticket which is a great value - this was our stop in the afternoon. Both museums well worth it and IMHO far better than Williamsburg. Loved the combination of modern interactive displays and living...More

Even our teenage grandson was fully engaged. The mix of art, history, unique perspectives, and the multimedia presentations provides something for every one.

I wanted to go and was hoping the family would some what enjoy it. However, it ended up being one of the highlights! The Siege of Yorktown movie was suprisingly awesome! A must watch! The effects were not expected

Weren't sure what to expect, but certainly worth the stop. Ample free parking. Go inside and explore several films and display. The best we thought was out back where they have a colonial army encampment and then a farm home stead. They have actors talking...More
