Of all the trips to Williamsburg over all the years, this is the first time we've taken the time to visit this museum - it won't be the last. Never have I ever seen a more superb collection of American primitives and craftsmanship as in this building - toys, personal items, works of art - all the most perfectly executed... More

We went to the AAR Folk Art Museum because of a Christmas concert there, and from what we saw that first day we knew we had to go back. We went the following day and spent several hours going through the two museums. Great displays, many interactive, as well as a kids area for those who need that. Colonial Williamsburg... More

We loved this museum. Unfortunately, we came after having spent a long day in the Colonial City and were too tuckered out to truly appreciate all that this place has to offer. But we will be back for sure, with this as our first stop. Folk art, silver, furniture, unusual instruments, period harsicords, toys. Varied and intersting. And free with... More

We always do several programs at the museum especially around Christmas. Two years in a row we got to make ornaments . And the exhibits are very nice. Also the programs in the Auditorium are wonderful.

The building looks small but after entering you become familiar with the terms "down, back & up." A lot of the exhibits are below and hidden from outside view. Was amazed and thoroughly enjoyed the manner in which one is able to tour.

The museum is nicely layed out, my husband and I enjoyed our visit Dec 2, 2016, perhaps not a very exciting spot for young children.

I am so glad that Williamsburg moved the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Collection to its new setting. What a beautiful and fun exhibit. Right now for the holidays there is a specially decorated room - a Victorian Christmas in North Carolina. Just lovely and the rest of their exhibits are beautiful too. Don't miss!

Folk art is inspiring and this museum is great. I always love coming here and it is set up for wheel chairs. Simple park between the building and the wall and take the ramp into the museum. Very good staff, too.
