Beautiful museum and great fort and ship replications. Even though it was just my husband and I, this is great for families. We are big historical buffs and the artifacts in the museum are wonderful.

I loved the film which contextualised the story. It is well done. Lots of great artefacts, the Pocahontas exhibition is good, as it puts right some of the stories about her.

You should not visit the tide water area without seeing the Jamestown settlement and museum. This place and St Augustine FL are two must see American locations for any fan of history.

We went there after a recommendation from a shop owner in Jamestown. It was so informative and interactive! We got to see a cannon shot (with blanks) and a musket. We also toured homes set up as they were in the old days.

Want to see how things were when the settlers came over. The settlement and the period actors were great. They answered all our questions.

Went with a group of 20 from 2-65 years old during a family reunion and it was enjoyed by all. You have to start by watching the movie as you need that background for making the most of the time walking around. The ability to...More

check MWR about the military discount. Most of the Williamsburg area attractions offer military discounts but only through MWR.
