Historic Jamestowne
#2 of 19 Museums in Williamsburg
Overall, the settlement at Jamestown is truly a Gem with its multiple museums and exhibits, professional and friendly staff, as well as very well-maintained grounds and facilities.
The museums are excellent and make the history of Jamestown and the United State interesting but those presenting the living history aspect are phenomenal.

Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum
#3 of 19 Museums in Williamsburg
This has to be one of the outstanding folk art museums in the U.S. It shows the diversity and culture of our country in a bright light.
If you just want to do the museums, you can purchase your ticket on site, and one entry fee gets you into this and the Dewiit Museum of Decorative Arts, also packed with spectacular pieces.

Love these museums, including the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller folk art museum, both for the exhibits and the programs we see there in the auditorium.
The most amazing part of the wonderful museums under the Public Hospital.
