Historic Jamestowne is the original site of the first permanent English settlement in America. Ongoing archaeology at the site of James Fort has changed our understanding of the struggles and triumphs of early 1600s life in Virginia. Living history programs and an archaeology museum tell the story of this dramatic rediscovery. The site is jointly administered by the National Park Service and Preservation Virginia.

This is a must go for all "history nerds". It takes about 2 hours to tour and has a variety of indoor museums, outdoor re-creations and exhibits and archeological digs. It is a very well presented and interpreted attraction.

Was fortunate to stumble in during some war event. Included methods of defense and attack from ancient Romans and Greeks, on up to present day. That, along with colonial demonstrations was terrific.

Like to stop by to see what's new at the dig. New artifacts are being found all the time. If you like to see history this is the place. If you want to see re-creation go to settlement.

Jamestown is small and has just a few things to see. The Jamestown Settlement is the BEST thing to do in town!

Don't think so... the place is laced with boarwalks. May be a bit tricky, if he wants to get on one of the boats, though. Happy travels.
