At Jamestown Settlement, explore the world of America’s first permanent English colonists and the Powhatan Indians of coastal Virginia. Witness a dramatic documentary film and tour exhibition galleries featuring rare 1600s artifacts. Board a replica of one of the three ships – Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery — that reached Virginia in 1607, and try your hand at setting a sail or lowering cargo into the hold. Try on armor or play a game of quoits in the palisaded colonial fort. In a re-created Powhatan Indian village, take part in activities Pocahontas would have helped with as a child – grinding corn, gardening, cordage-making.
The American Revolution Museum at Yorktown tells anew the story of the nation’s founding, from the twilight of the colonial period to the dawn of the Constitution and beyond. Comprehensive indoor exhibits and outdoor living history capture the transformational nature and epic scale of the Revolution and its relevance today. Galleries feature period artifacts, immersive environments, interactive exhibits and films, including “The Siege of Yorktown,” with a 180-degree surround screen and dramatic special effects. Visitors witness artillery demonstrations and drill with wooden muskets at a re-created Continental Army encampment and explore – and help work – a Revolution-era farm based on a real-life 18th-century family.
