Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg

History Museum
Step back in time to the days of the Founding Fathers and the Revolutionary War at Colonial Williamsburg. The interactive, living-history museum--which covers 122 hectares (301 acres)--is actually a network of restored Colonial structures manned by costumed, in-character employees. Ride in a rented horse-drawn carriage down the cobblestone streets past the Governor's Palace and Capitol Building. Walk through Merchants Square, an 18th-century marketplace dotted with original storefronts. Take part in America’s fight for independence during a reenactment of the storming of the Governor's Palace or the march to victory at Yorktown. You can even participate in a trial. Purchase the combined Historic Triangle ticket for discounted entries to Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown. Add Colonial Williamsburg and other attractions to your Williamsburg trip itinerary using our Williamsburg vacation planner.

  • There's a small, stagecoach in the middle where there were actors portraying and reciting Christmas Carol (during Christmas time festivities). They may have other, seasonal shows just checkout the stagecoach (that looks like a prop).
