Jamestown Settlement, a museum of 17th-century Virginia history and culture, explores America's first permanent English colony through film, immersive galleries and living history in outdoor re-creations of a Powhatan Indian village, three English ships and 1610-14 colonial fort.
Expansive gallery exhibits and an introductory film, 1607: A Nation Takes Root, trace Jamestown's beginnings in England and the first century of the Virginia colony and describe the Powhatan Indian, English and Angolan cultures that converged in early Virginia. Outdoors, visitors can grind corn in a Powhatan Indian village, climb aboard one of three re-created ships - Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery, or try on armor to experience life in the Jamestown colony in a re-created 1610-14 fort.
Administered by the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, an agency of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and supported by Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, Inc. for private fund development.
