At Jamestown Settlement & American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, History is Fun!
Take a journey of historic proportions at Jamestown Settlement and the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown – two living-history museums that explore the story of America’s beginnings, from the founding of America’s first permanent English colony in 1607 to the Revolution and the establishment of a new nation almost two centuries later. Discover artifact-filled exhibition galleries and take part in activities in outdoor living-history areas to learn about life in the 17th and 18th centuries. Explore a variety of ticket options to visit Jamestown Settlement and the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown.
