This is a beautiful and interesting museum. It has lots of beautiful furniture, dishes, silver, portraits, and has some musical instruments, weapons from the Revolutionary War, textiles, and clothing. If you like museums, this is a must see when you visit Williamsburg.
Great Americana folk art, large collection. Also excellent colonial American antique furniture
