Overview
More
Historic Jamestowne is the original site of the first permanent English settlement in America. Ongoing archaeology at the site of James Fort has changed our understanding of the struggles and triumphs of early 1600s life in Virginia. Living history programs and an archaeology museum tell the story of this dramatic rediscovery. The site is jointly administered by the National Park Service and Preservation Virginia.

The introductory movie at the Visitor's Center was good. It was a dreary, rainy day, but our Archaeological Tour was so interesting that being in drizzle for over an hour was not minded. Tour guide Amber was GREAT. Her information about how archaeologists study their...More

Inside was nicely done and air conditioned. Outside was too dusty and sweltering with the summer sun.

Jamestowne Museum and Tour is excellent and if you have not visited in recent years, it is worth revisiting. Three hours is hardly enough time!

So my husband and 10yo daughter enjoyed Colonial Williamsburg the best, but the two Jamestown sites (Jamestown Settlement Museum and this, Historic Jamestowne) were my favorites! The visitor center here is lovely and well thought out and the ruins and museum are great. Heading out...More
