Colonial Williamsburg's Living Museum
Submerse yourself in history.
History reawakens in Virginia’s (and the country’s) most comprehensively reconstructed Colonial-era village. Wander down the streets of the historic town, chitchatting with early settlers making candles and casting horseshoes.
1 Colonial Williamsburg
Wander the cobbled streets of this national treasure. Try on period outfits (for a fee), learn to make cabinets or shoes, tour an old printing office, and ask costumed interpreters anything you want.
2 Chowning's Tavern
The revolutionary spirit prevails after 5, when 18th-century fare like Brunswick stew and Welsh rarebit are accompanied by colonial-style entertainment and family sing-alongs.
3 Colonial Houses-Historic Lodging
The 18th-century houses and taverns scattered throughout the historic village are retrofitted with modern comforts, bathrooms chief among them.
