Description

from America's Historic Triangle Combo Pass
Explore America's past while visiting Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown Settlement.

America's Historic Triangle Combo Pass provides seven (7) consecutive days for unlimited admission to Colonial Williamsburg, Historic Jamestowne, Jamestown Settlement, Yorktown Battlefield, and American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. Includes parking.

You'll be able to visit Colonial Williamsburg, the nation’s largest living history museum where there are over 300 acres featuring restored and reconstructed buildings, costumed interpreters, and interactive shows, as well as unique shops and museums.

The Jamestown Settlement pays homage to America’s first permanent English colony. There are recreations of the colonists’ fort, three ships and a Powhatan Indian Village that depicts life in the early 1600s.

Yorktown is the site of the final battle of the American Revolutionary War, and is home to the Yorktown Victory Center. Artifact-filled galleries and outdoor recreations showcase the life of Americans during the Revolutionary era.

Historic Jamestowne offers a wealth of activities for exploring the first permanent English settlement in North America. Share the moment of discovery with archaeologists and witness archaeology-in-action at the 1607 James Fort excavation; tour the reconstructed 17th-century Jamestown Memorial Church and original 17th-century church tower; take a walking tour with a park ranger through the New Towne area along the scenic James River; "meet" a 17th-century personality; and watch costumed glassblowers at the Glasshouse.

"Great experience"
July, 2018 NEW
This pass saves money and enables you to access Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. The Revolutionary museum in Yorktown is very well done. My son (9) and husband spent 6 hours at the Jamestown archeology site. We spent a day at each area and still didn't cover it all. We look forward to purchasing again to complete all that we wanted to see!

"Historic Triangle was worth the money"
July, 2018 NEW
Myself along with 9 other family members spent a week in Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. We had an amazing experience at each location. The American Revolution Museum in Yorktown was fabulous. They had many interactive exhibits, movies and programs. We had children from age 5 to 15 with us and each one of them had programs directed at their age. We were in Williamsburg for the 4th of July and the fireworks. I was awestruck by the reading of the Declaration of Independence, the singing of America the Beautiful, and the fife and drummers marching through the streets. I would recommend spending such a Patriotic Day in one of Americas first settlements.

"Historic Triangle Pass worked well"
July, 2018 NEW
We were able to go to Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown multiple times during the week. Wearable our badges made entrance fast and easy at each place. This pass was a time saver and probably a money saver. I recommend it to anyone who will be in the area for the most of a week.

"Three Great Days"
July, 2018 NEW
We spent 3 days in Williamsburg and enjoyed it all. We used the Triangle Combo Pass. Our first day was Old Williamsburg. Toured the Governors Palace, the Capital and other smaller places. Everyone was very informative. My high school history is so old, there were lots of things I haven't thought of in years. The second day we spent in Yorktown. Took the car tour then the walking tour. Didn't have time to go to the new museum that day but had time on the third day after seeing Jamestown. The high point was the Yorktown museum. It's only a couple of years old and truly incredible. Amazing place.

Tip: The Triangle Combo pass works great even if you only have 3 days. We ate at the Kings Arms Tavern in Williamsburg the first evening. We called ahead for reservations and was glad we did. They were very busy.

"Nice combination"
June, 2018 NEW
This is a good combination covering all the related historic places in the area. It saves a lot over admission separately at the places if you plan on visiting all or at least most of them (Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown Battlefield, American Revolutionary Museum, Historic Jamestowne and Jamestown Settlement.

Tip: The park areas at Historic Jamestown and Yorktown Battlefield are open into the evening though the visitors centers close at 5 or 5:30. Just be sure to get in to Historic Jamestowne before 5. We arrived shortly after and the in road was closed though the out stayed open until dusk.

"Buy the Historic Triangle Pass Now!"
June, 2018 NEW
Wow, is all we can say! The Historic Triangle pass is the way to go! When we went to the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center it was very easy to obtain our tickets. Make sure to have your printed form ready. We first went to Colonial Williamsburg. There is a free shuttle that takes you from the Visitors Center so that was great. We spent quite a bit of time there as the city is set like it would've been in colonial times. Our pass got us into all the buildings We then went to both Jamestown and Yorktown areas too. As you can see from the pictures below, we had a blast. We wrote blog posts about our experiences so you can read more. Here they are:
