Explore Colonial Williamsburg

When you visit the world's largest living history museum, you become part of one of the greatest stories ever told. This is the dawn of America. Our 18th-century city is alive where the dreamers with a bold vision quite literally changed the world. You'll meet artisans, craftsmen (and women), and talk with America’s founding generation whose diversity, aspirations, and struggles shaped who we are today. 18th-century artifacts take center stage at the Art Museums, many of which were discovered by archaeologists just blocks away. This isn't just history. This is where history comes alive.

Whether you're looking to plan your family's next vacation or a romantic trip for two, Colonial Williamsburg has something for everyone. It's time to go back.
