You can wander among reconstructed buildings of the original James Fort, which resemble their 17th-century appearance. Dig deeper by exploring the archaeological museum that displays items from the original English colonists, local Native American tribes, and the Africans who called the region home. Facing the river, catch a glimpse of the statue of John Smith, a leader in the development of the Virginia Colony in its early years.

  • It was a great place to see where the artifacts from Jamestown was discovered.
  • So much to see and learn at Historic Jamestown. There are new discoveries every time we come. The museum is wonderful and we also always stop at the cafe for lunch or a snack enjoyed by the banks of the James River. Park rangers provide informative tours if you time your arrival.
