People tend to check in during these times:
Established in 1928 The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is the oldest and largest outdoor living history museum in the United States.
Check out the Powell house for lots of kid friendly activities. The area is a great place to just walk around for a few hours. What a gem.
Live re-enactments are well done if melodramatic at times. Most take place from 10-11am and 4-5pm, so plan your arrival time and meals accordingly.
If you already have tickets (and thus don't need to go in the Visitor Center), overflow parking is closer to the Revolutionary City.
50% teacher discount includes college faculty/staff. Only available in person, but applies to either 1- or 3-day ticket.
Buy tickets in advance or be prepared to wait a LONG time ridiculous!!! Think they would have a better system
Two performances not to miss.. Cry Witch and Pirate Amongst Us Ghost Tour.... Worth the money!
Make sure you see the movies before hoping on the shuttle bus. It's a good foundation for what you're about to see, and in our case, it really helped to get the kids hooked.
Worth every penny. Spend a week; you won't see it all.
Teachers be sure to bring your id for a 50% discount on tickets!
My family loves Colonial Williamsburg; we've been coming since I was little. The tours are different each time we visit, and all of the workers are well-informed. Highly rec the refillable mugs!
Be patient, parking was confusing.
Tickets totally worth it. pay attention to the schedule- lots of shops will close throughout the day due to staffing needs so if there is something special you want to see/ tour, make sure you go!
$42 for a 1-day adult admission?! Most of the historic areas and buildings in Williamsburg are open to the public without an admission ticket. Save yourself the money and support the local merchants.
Visitors Center worth a trip - fab buys on hand made soaps and powders - sustainably produced and packaged!
this place was great agreed with prior tips needs 2 days to go through everything but definitely a great place and very educational on how things were in the past
Tickets are consecutive. Not separate days. The didn't tell us until after we purchased
The free shuttles with passes are very nice! Easy way to get around Colonial Williamsburg!
Buying a ticket is the only way to experience all the place has to offer. You could walk the streets for free & see a bunch of buildings & miss 95% of what makes the place the key history site it is.
Great historical experience. Love the daily programs
You don't need to take the bus into the colonial area, there's a walking bridge/path. Look down while you walk, there are cool historical tidbits embedded in the concrete!
If you just want to walk around and not see inside all of the exhibits, you don't have to buy a ticket.
There is a 10% military discount with ID.
They give teacher discount. :)
This place is amazing! Definately need atleast 2 days!
Be sure to make a reservation here if you want to dine at one of the taverns in the restored are!!
