  • Was out walking and saw the sign for the Muscarelle Museum of Art and a photography exhibit by African Americans. Was told that there was a $5 admission fee (no one there) and since no cash on me had ...  more »
  • We have been to this small museum twice because of visiting exhibitions. It is definitely worth keeping an eye on their calendar. I am not sure what parking restrictions you may face on a weekday but ...  more »
  • The museum is very small but they have quite a collection and displayed quite nicely. It was a good find on a quiet afternoon.  more »

  • Well presented exhibits. Provided the right amount of written context. Nice and quiet but a doscent did volunteer to take us around. Good use of an hour to get a break from the Colonial history!
  • Great place to learn about the latest cultural changes.
  • An incredible venue with inspiring work- plus WM students can go for free!
  • Fantastic art on the walls, I think. But I'm not sure because it was so crowded I was only able to catch a glimpse. The cards on the wall were informative, but since they were composed of white letters on a dark red background, they were hard to read and then in turn it was hard to look at the art without seeing lines from the text. I hope the intern whose job it was to make these cards will change his or her ways.
  • Fantastic small museum. The only reason I dock it a star is because its size means that it is limited in what it can display. Free entrance for William and Mary students, which is a nice perk.

Where to stay in Williamsburg

Williamsburg offers lodgings for every taste, including four-star resorts, quaint inns, and budget-friendly hotels. Accommodations in the city's historical district provide easy access to all of the area's major attractions, but they also charge much higher prices than equally comfortable guesthouses in some of the outlying neighborhoods. For a genuine Virginian experience, consider pitching a tent or renting a cottage in one of the area's popular campgrounds, which offer shuttle services to the city's major attractions and provide free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and fenced-in areas for pets.
