    While our family did enjoy the living history portion at the Jamestown Settlement….we did NOT agree with pushing the Woke agenda! It’s supposed to be history; not personal views!!

    This was a very educational place to learn about the history of the settlement . This is definitely worth the seven day ticket for families

    We had a two-day pass for Jamestown and Yorktown. We were at the Museum for Jamestown's 400th anniversary in 2007. It is an unbelievable place and worth the money; you could/should spend hours there! We also had lunch in the museum - the chef's salad is definitely worth the money and the dining area is very clean.

    The Yorktown Revolutionary Museum was so educational. We really loved it. The Old Jamestown Settlement was worth the visit. However, after getting our tickets at Yorktown and the sticker to wear one lady at Jamestown Settlement was extremely rude and really awful and mean. She was an older ( kinda overweight) African American. I really wanted to tell her how she came across to us but we didn’t. People like her should not be working with the public. She gave me the same sticker to wear I was already wearing. Rudest person we came across in visiting the area. She spoiled our memories in this area for sure.

    This is a perfect opportunity to learn about early Virginia history, and the interplay of cultures. Who doesn't love a fort with people performing 17th century tasks, an Indian encampment and three ships?

    The Jamestown tour was informative and instrumental in providing relevant information into the start and rise of the USA as a sovereign nation. To see the place where the final separation from England occurred, to be able to walk the streets where the war took place, to see a real live sugar pan that was used to boil sugar, to see statues of my foreparents working in the forging house was so surreal to the point it brought tears ro my eyes. Thanks for sharing this opportunity with me. I truly enjoyed it.

    Two seniors spent a full day touring the Jamestown Settlement living-history museum run by the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation (an educational agency of the Commonwealth of Virginia) in late September 2022 and thoroughly enjoyed it. This was a return trip in more years than we care to remember and much has changed for the better. There are costumed interpreters located outside at the replicas of an Indian village, the three colonist ships and at the James Fort. The interpreters were all interesting to talk with especially the ship’s crews, who actually sail on the two ships they take out into the Chesapeake Bay occasionally and the “soldier” who demonstrated firing a matchlock musket. We spent about two hours outside then broke for lunch (cafe inside the museum) and then spent the remainder of the day touring the inside of the museum. Overwhelming number of exhibits. Two very well-done short movies on Jamestown and Bacon’s Rebellion. Covered history from prehistoric times to about 1699 when the capital was moved from Jamestown to Williamsburg. YMMV but we love this stuff and read almost everything, so we ended up here from 9am until 5pm. There is so much history here. Very kid friendly. We decided to spend a week in the Williamsburg area so we purchased the America's Historic Triangle Ticket with seven consecutive days' admission for Colonial Williamsburg, Historic Jamestowne/Jamestowne Rediscovered, Jamestown Settlement, American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, and Yorktown Battlefield. Other ticket combinations are also available. See their website.

    The museum is fantastic. Great combination of indoor and outdoor displays. Docents are fun to talk to. Get the combo ticket that includes Jamestown.

    We really enjoyed speaking with the different Indians and settler's on the property. They were extremely knowledgeable and had a lot of really great information to share about how they lived during that time.
