Reviewed June 17, 2013

I adore folk art so I was in heaven touring this museum. It was fascinating to actually see this collection of historical and casual artwork.

“Rainy Day Amazing”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

As many others have stated, we ended up here on a rainy day. But we should have put this on our MUST SEE list for Williamsburg. It is filled with an eclectic collection of items: portraits, armory, furniture, sculpture, and one of the most amazing collections of silver. As a bonus, you enter the museum through the old hospital where you have the opportunity for a quick tour of it's history. It's free with a ticket to Colonial Williamsburg, and you can "run" through it, or you could spend hours and hours.

“One of the highlights of Williamsburg”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

The collection are well worth a visit. I particularly enjoyed the furniture and folk art, but there is something for everyone, from the earliest money in America, to guns, pottery, quilts, musical instruments, and silver.

“Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

I didn't even know the museum existed, but ventured in when the weather wasn't cooperating. Although folk art isn't totally my thing, it was very interesting and fascinating to see the china, silver and more over time. This museum is definitely worth a visit. It's free admission with a ticket to Colonial Williamsburg. There is an exhibit/room specifically for kids. Older kids and adults will probably appreciate it more than younger kids.
