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 mid-October 2016. Outdoors, historical interpreters engage visitors in everyday life of the Revolution in re-creations of a Continental Army encampment and Revolution-era farm.
The Yorktown Victory Center continues to welcome visitors daily as it transforms into American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, to open in mid-October 2016.
