Amazing site with great staff that can answer all your questions. The drive tour is outstanding and the five dollar cd is a must get. Very interactive and worthwhile. One of the best things in historic triangle.

We were in the area for our grandsons graduation from Army school and stumbled onto this National Park. We love visiting parks and this was no exception since it was from the Revolution War. They have a 17 min film that gives you an overview...More

The National Park Service has a wonderful video movie, museum, and tour of the Yorktown battlefield. Very impressive artifacts, including cannons and emplacements. If you are in to nature and wildlife, return at sunset to see many deer come out of the woods to feed...More

This one is about the right size for understanding one of the most, if not the most, critical battles in American history in an afternoon. It could use a bit of cosmetic updating in the visitor center, but the displays are worth spending some time...More

Because this is a battlefield, it is very spread out. Out of all the places we visited in the Triangle (Yorktown Battlefield, Revolutionary War Museum, Historic Jamestowne, Jamestown Settlement and Colonial williamsburg), this was our least favorite - but still informative and great historical location....More

We stopped here on our way out of town. The drive in was nice and scenic. There's a driving trail around the battlefield and various stops you can get out. They offer tours as well, but we didn't have time to do that. Still learned...More

I'll preface this with I'm not much of a war or battlefield history nut. But I truly enjoyed our visit. The museum was the right size to hold the interest of our 1st grader and toddler. The self-serve feel of the driving tour was nice...More

Visited the museum and battle field with very little knowledge (as a Brit) of American history. I had no idea that the French were instrumental in the downfall of the British army, no wonder we still don’t trust them! Museum very well laid out and...More

My dad is over 60 and he was offered a lifetime pass for 10 dollars and is good for all national parks. We were there on a Wednesday and had the park to ourselves. They offer an audio tour so you can move at your own pace.
