  • This is a great place for history Buffs and people who just like to see interesting things. There are lots of docents and interpreters there that can really tell you the story about the Jamestown Settlement and life in the very early days of our country. There are demonstrations that go on throughout the settlement the entire day. The gift shops are great they have a wide variety of memorabilia and lots of stuff that kids love. The grounds are kept very well. The facilities are very nice. Almost everywhere in Jamestown is handicapped accessible with the exception of the ships. This is a year-round educational gem!

  • The displays are great and informative... But this is NOT THE HISTORICAL SITE. This is a museum. Well done and informative.. but if you want the actual site... It's around the corner. Which you will also have to pay to see.. SEE THE HISTORICAL SITE FIRST.

  • Truly a unique experience. I was surprised to see how well made all of the exhibitions were here. The inside of the museum had a very nice introduction movie, that helped set the mood. The actors outside in the camp were a great addition. They had tons of knowledge about the time period, making the whole experience so much better. Can recommend this to anyone with a sense of curiosity.

  • A wonderful, informative experience. I'll definitely be back to see more. There's so much to do that we couldn't see everything in one day. My children really enjoyed talking to the actors in each area and asking questions about what life was like in the past. They also enjoyed exploring the boats and taking the ferry over to Jamestown. My favorite part was the indoor musuem.

  • Very cool history at the settlement. They have it set up like a story with a path outside and different stops along the way including an Indian village, English ships and a settlement. The inside museum was very nice as well. Very dynamic chronological displays and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Wear comfortable shoes, there's a lot of walking to see everything.
