“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

We visited Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown Victory Center on a dual ticket. Very informative, nice clean museums, excellent staff, some interactive exhibits. Enjoyed the outdoors, visiting the replica ship and the settlements at Jamestown and the replica military camp at Yorktown.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

The Visitors center is under construction however, you are still able to view all they have to offer. The have an encampment, a farm and a museum for you to tour. The farm and encampment have several things for you to touch and go inside while the museum is mostly signs however there are a few recordings that play out dramas for you to look and listen to. We had a good time walking around. Since we live in the area we thought we new all about Yorktown but we manage to find several facts we had no idea about. The admission price was reasonable and we will certainly return with other family memebers that haven't been.

“Family Stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

We stopped here with a 1, 5 and 8 year old and all found something to enjoy at Yorktown Victory Center.
The museum was very interesting. My son enjoyed seeing the rat skulls from a ship from the 1700s. My daughter enjoyed dressing up in period clothing.
Outside we saw a weapons demonstration and watered the crops.

We left with several authentic purchases from the gift shop.

We stayed about 2 hours.

A must stop!
