  • The information center is pretty small, but how much can you actually inform people about something that is a total mystery? The colony is lost, by some means, but it isn't like they can actually tell...  more »

  • First of all, this is a National Park. But there was no admission fee. That makes it a bargain IF it's worth visiting. And it was. When we first arrived, we spent some time in the visitors center. Thi...  more »

  • We only had about 45 mins to spend here because we arrived late in the day but we had the best time! Very educational - even if you've always grown up hearing the story of the Lost Colony, you will learn something new here. The outdoor exhibit was awesome - and we captured a few *possible* ghost photos (it's a hobby of ours). It was really beautiful, shady and educational without being boring, even for our teenage daughters. We also were able to check out the outdoor theatre and can't wait to go back when it's in season and actually see the drama! Best of all - it's 100% free! We will be back and hopefully will have more time to explore!
  • Watched an educational video and toured the small display of 'possible' artifacts. There is a reproduction of an earthen fort that you can see. Nothing amazing or awe inspiring, but worth a short visit for historical purposes.
  • So much better than expected! Full blown Lost Colony museum. Rangers are the best... totally knowledgeable experts.
  • Best chicken parmesan I have ever had! Wonderful wait staff and very reasonable prices! My husband and I are excited to have Vic's closer to home.
  • Very educational and easy walking. The Elizabethan Gardens were so beautiful and the employees very friendly and helpful.
