The Yorktown Victory Center, a museum of the American Revolution, chronicles America’s struggle for independence, from the beginnings of unrest to the formation of the new nation.
An American Revolution timeline offers a visual journey from the 13 British colonies in the 1750s to westward expansion of the new United States in the 1790s. Three films are shown on a rotating basis in the museum theater. An exhibit, “Creating Our New Museum,” provides a multimedia, interactive encounter with the permanent galleries and introductory film that will premiere with the museum’s transition to the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown in late 2016. Outdoors, historical interpreters engage visitors in everyday life of the Revolution in re-creations of a Continental Army encampment and Revolution-era farm.
Special holiday programs include "Foods & Feasts of Colonial Virginia," November 26-28, and "A Colonial Christmas," December 1 through January 3, 2016.
The Yorktown Victory Center continues to welcome visitors daily as it transforms over the next few years into the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, to open late 2016.
