One of my favorite museums ever! Loved exploring the outdoor encampment and chatting with the characters. I learned so much about early everyday life in the colonies. There are so many hands-on interactive exhibits inside and out. A must see!

The museum is very interesting and a nice reprieve from the Virginia summer heat. Several movies and live presentations along with the self guided tour. We also enjoyed the exhibition of firing a cannon. great trip for those interested in history.
