Plan on spending the day here. Open 9-5. Free parking. We walked around outside in the full scale re-creation of the colonists' fort, Powhatan Indian Village as well as a riverfront pier with re-creations of the three 1607 ships that brought the settlers to Jamestown...More
Always wanted to go to Jamestown all the history is in this place,from the replica ships that landed in Jamestown Indian village,fort where they show how the people live and survived.Go experience the history before it’s to late to see.
Once you see the movie and take a docent-led tour, the rest is pretty repetitious. The "Tenacity" exhibit is pretty weak. They don't really have a lot of information about the women of Jamestown, and it shows in the exhibit. What little they have is...More
If you're heading to Williamsburg, be sure to schedule at least half a day in the Jamestown Settlement. Not only is the museum truly world class with artifacts from the earliest English settlers, but the Powhatan Indian Village walking tour is well-done, and so are...More
I didn't expect much when I entered the building, thinking it was going to be a movie and walk-through but I was wrong. I should have planned a whole day here! We arrived just after lunch and checked into the museum but was not prepared...More
Enjoyed spending a day here with my wife, daugther, and mother-in-law. The museum is very informative, and the recreated Indian village, fort, and ships are amazing. The guides are very knowledgable and enthusiastic about their areas of expertise.
Our second visit to the Settlement, & brought daughter & son in law this trip. We all loved the gorgeous museum, & the replica of the Indian village is amazing as well as educational. The 3 ships, Susan Constant, Discovery & Godspeed are all docked...More

Parts of the museum are indoors and part are outdoors. All of the interactive parts are outdoors. So if you have a break in the rain, you can go out. For us, the outdoor experience was great! The inside is typical museum... go from exhibit to exhibit and read what is on the wall. It was all a great experience though! Worth the money!

Historic Jamestown is the actual site. That is where the archeologists are, finding new things all the time. It is part of the National Park System. Jamestown Settlement is run by the State of Virginia. Everything there is a re-“creation. The costumed historical interpreters do not speak like the English did 400 years ago. They are not doing first person like at Colonial Williamsburg. They do not pretend to be the original site. They go out of their way to make sure the visitors understand that. Both are gems and best seen on the same day. On your drive to Historic Jamestown, you will pass Glassworks. Site of the original 1608 glasshouse. One of the first English industries.
