Wasn't sure what to expect. Very surprised and pleased by this place. Our tour guide knew her stuff. She was more than willing to answer any questions. The display of some of the "defendants" at Nuremberg was chilling. Robert H. Jackson is someone who really...More

I took advantage of Doors Open Jamestown and spent some time at the Jackson Center. Have been here several times and learn something new every time. I always have questions and the people working there always have the answer.

The Robert H. Jackson Center has so much to offer for anyone interested in WWII, the Nuremburg Trials, and other historical information from that era of world history. If you're visiting Jamestown for any other reason, be sure not to miss the Jackson Center.

We spent the morning at the Jackson Center, listening to several extremely interesting presentations. This Center is an excellent organization to provide you with intellectual stimulation!

Very important piece of Jamestown history. Set in a beautiful old mansion, the museum is dedicated to memorializing Robert H. Jackson's strength at the Nuremberg trials and is a fascinating look back at the litigator and the history. The old phrase..."lest we forget" was never...More
