History is revolutionary, and now more than ever as Yorktown, VA celebrates the 10-year transformation from the Yorktown Victory Center into The American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. Prepare for a renewed national perspective on the meaning and impact of the Revolution through introductory film, timeline, expansive gallery exhibits with nearly 500 artifacts, interactive displays and experiential theaters, and new settings for hands-on interpretive experiences in expanded re-creations of a Continental Army encampment and Revolution-era farm. Join in the celebration March 23rd – April 4th. In addition, feel free to check out the Jamestown Settlement, a museum of 17th-century Virginia history and culture, visitors this spring can experience new interactive gallery exhibits exploring the Powhatan Indian, English and west central African cultures that converged in the 1600s.
