Jamestown Settlement, a museum of 17th-century colonial Virginia, explores the world of America’s first permanent English colony.
A new introductory film and exhibition galleries trace Jamestown’s beginnings in England, the first century of the Virginia colony and describe cultures of Powhatan Indians, Europeans and Africans who converged in 1600s Virginia.
Historical interpreters depict life of the period in outdoor re-creations of the colonists’ fort, their three ships and a Powhatan village, and a riverfront discovery area. Visitors may try their hand at grinding corn, scrape out a canoe, play games, wear armor, and more.
