Colonial Williamsburg in Williamsburg VA

Experience life as it was in our nation's yesterdays. Explore the homes and buildings where men like Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Patrick Henry inspired the fight for independence.

Scores of original buildings, hundreds of homes, shops, and public buildings are reconstructed over 301 acres - most on their original foundations. Rare animal breeds, trades, and gardens add layers of authenticity to the recreated town.

Find yourself fully in the nation's yesterdays as you dance with an 18th-century instructor, walk with curators and gardeners, take part in a witch trial, or march with the Fifes and Drums. Find these programs and many more offered daily in Colonial Williamsburg's Revolutionary City.

The distinctive collections of the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum are now under one roof. Linger over singular examples of American and British antiques from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, then explore bold and imaginative pieces of colonial and contemporary folk art.

The Revolutionary City of Colonial Williamsburg stretches over 301 acres, and includes 88 original 18th-century structures. Hundreds of houses, shops and public outbuildings are reconstructed on their original foundations. Some buildings are open to the public, while others are private residences and administrative offices. A flag at a building's entrance indicates that the site is open.

When the sun sets, Colonial Williamsburg's live entertainment continues. Whether you are interested in taking a walking ghost tour or watching an 18th Century play, you are sure to find a program that will entertain and inspire you.)
