Quirky toys, whimsical whirligigs, carousel characters, backwoods banjos, British ceramics, antique instruments, textiles, firearms, clothing and more await you at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum and the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum at Colonial Williamsburg.
Use your admission ticket or pass to see these distinctive collections. Both are located under one roof...and underground.
Our entrance is located in the Public Hospital of 1773.
But not for long.
Coming this fall, as part of our new 65,000-square-foot expansion, the Art Museums will have a visitor-friendly entrance on Nassau Street.
