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.

Through January 2015, exhibits provide accounts of the Revolution and describe the convergence of forces on Yorktown in 1781. The Declaration of Independence Gallery features a rare early broadside printing of the Declaration dating to July 1776, before a handwritten copy on parchment was signed by members of Congress. Outdoors, historical intepreters engage visitors in everyday life of the Revolution in re-creations of a Continental Army encampment and Revolution-era farm.

Special programs include "From Africa to Virginia" theme month in February, "Fashion in Colonial Virginia" theme month in June, and "Liberty Celebration" July 4-5.

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.

Administered by the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, an agency of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and supported by Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, Inc., for private fund development.
