We had been to Williamsburg twice before but had never taken time to visit the Folk Art Museum. It is full of fascinating sculptures, wooden figurines, and paintings each with their own unique story..... more »
A first class museum with multiple different collections and history presentations. Could spend many days here. Wish the cafetetia/coffee shop had better options .
Maybe our expectations were too high but aside from some beautiful furniture I didn't get excited. Winterthur has better examples and there were renovations everywhere. Signage was abysmal. I don't think I will return.
