    This is a cannot miss for any American! The Archaeologist's tour was phenomenal! Plan at least 4-5 hours to see everything, take all of the tours, and spend time in the museum. Go on a sunny day!

    Amazing place! A lot to see and a lot to do! Go in the church, sit near the water, see the archaerium and view the foundations of old houses!

    Note to those driving here after 5pm: both Historic and Settlement close at 5pm. Unlike Colonial Williamsburg, you can't walk around after 5pm.

    The fort that anchored this 17th century settlement was thought lost before it was finally uncovered in 1994. To date, its excavation has yielded more than 150,000 artifacts. (From Aerial America) Read more

    Leap into the birth of the united states. See the reconstructed original fort, skeleton of a cannibalized settler, and the views of the indefatigable Jamestown settlers.

    Stand on the footbridge and see what's going on in the Pitch & Tar Swamp (so named because the colonists used the resin from the pine trees nearby for turpentine and naval stores).

    Tickets are $14 for adults, $0 for kids under 15, are good for 7 days and also get you into Yorktown Battlefield (not Victory Center).

    Go through the Jamestowne Settlement first, you will get much more out of Historic Jamestowne if you do.
