My husband and I took my 2.5 year old here. It was great for the price (They have AAA discount) and we had a great time. While we couldn't do everything, we loved what we did see. The museum was very well done with various...More

The main building is beautiful, and the air conditioning is deliciously cool. It's a great activity for a hot day. The indoor exhibits are well organized with several audio-visual presentations. You can easily pass an hour in comfort. There are two gift shops each with...More

It was great to board the boats and feel how small the living area was on such a long voyage. The characters demonstrating running the boats, making fishing nets or life at the fort were all friendly and engaging.

This settlement has buildings constructed as they were back in the times of Jamestowne. The workers are friendly and can inform you with information about the period and answer any questions.

I thought they did a really nice job with the recreation and layout of the settlement. The in period people were very knowledgeable and friendly. The museum inside was also very informative and well payed out. They had the AC cranking, which we really appreciated!

I should preface this review with the fact that we had just come from a similar activity in Plymouth, MA at the Plimoth Plantation so maybe we unfairly compared the two. If you have Plimoth Plantation on your atop you can skip this attraction and...More

Buy the package that does four sites. It is a better value than buying tickets for Jamestown and Yorktown one at a time. Museum tells the story of Jamestown and then you walk out to the settlements and the boats to get an idea of...More

Yes at the Yorktown Battlefield National Park. At Historic Jamestowne, your Sr. park pass will get you in at a very reduced rate. That is where the archeology is happening. The Jamestown Settlement and their sister museum... More

Any of them honestly but the room in the Comfort Suites are easily accessed and the Staff is more then willing to assist you. I would say shop around some.
