Mo to Su from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PMA recreation of one of the earliest European settlements in the Americas, the Jamestown Settlement consists of replicas of boats, buildings, and villages. This museum features galleries and videos about life as it was then and it manages to make history engaging for both adults and kids. Climb aboard the three boats which are replicas of those used to sail from England. Explore the Powhatan village to learn about the Native Americans of the area, and see the colonists' fort. Best of all, actors replicate the every day lives of the colonists wearing period costumes, doing chores, and acting just like the colonists of the day. A truly fun way to learn about history!
