Relive the experience of America's first permanent English colony.

Near the site of the original colony, Jamestown Settlement tells the story of 17th-century Virginia, from the arrival of English colonists in Jamestown in 1607 to the cultural encounters and events that planted the seeds of a new nation. The world of Jamestown, America’s first permanent English colony, comes to life through film, gallery exhibits and outdoor living history.

Jamestown Settlement is a year-round stage for engaging events and programs as part of the 2019 Commemoration, American Evolution, marking the 400th anniversary of key historical events that occurred in Virginia in 1619 that continue to influence America today. Inside permanent gallery exhibits, learn about the significance and impact of the first legislative assembly, arrival of the first recorded Africans, and the influx of English women to the colony. The museum was named as one of the New York Times’ 52 Places to Visit in 2019.

Expansive gallery exhibits and an introductory film describe the cultures of the Powhatan Indians, Europeans and Africans who converged in 17th-century Virginia, and trace Jamestown’s beginnings in England and the first century of the Virginia colony. New gallery exhibits coming in 2019: Sections of Jamestown Settlement gallery exhibits are undergoing a phased renovation to incorporate new historical research and technology, including interactive touch screens, immersive exhibits and a new multimedia experiential theater.

Climb aboard a re-creation of one of the three ships that sailed from England to Virginia in 1607. Explore life-size re-creations of the colonists’ fort and a Powhatan Indian village. In the outdoor areas, costumed historical interpreters describe and demonstrate daily life in early 17th-century Jamestown.
