Great overview of the revolution. There are a few movies shown inside the exhibit which are informative and also very engaging. One is like 180 degree screen that also has "wind" effect and "smoke" effect during the movie, very cool. The kids (age 12,14) loved...More

I love this revision of the old Yorktown Victory Center. The museum has excellent and informative exhibits, especially the Siege of Yorktown, where you feel as if you are surrounded by the action. The outdoor exhibits feature a military encampment and a 1780s farm. I...More

The indoor museum is brand-spanking new. Trying to address the broad sweep of the American Revolution is impossible beyond a summary. Outside, the military demonstrations were quite good with lively and knowledgeable presenters. The presenter at the farm home was also good.

With reenactments, demonstrations, and displays, I was overwhelmed with the information about this critical time in American History. The fact that some loyalist views were shared allowed for a better feel for the reality of the times. My American history education was restricted to 1960's...More

Thoroughly enjoyable visit! We took the self-guided tour of museum, revolutionary encampment and farm. The re-enactors did a very good job of demonstrating day-to-day life in revolutionary times, especially the demos of food preparation and preservation. Well worth the price of admission, and we would...More
