The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is a not-for-profit, privately funded, educational and cultural organization. All proceeds from tickets to the Revolutionary City and museums, Colonial Williamsburg hotels, dining, Spa, shops, and golf courses directly fund our educational mission.

Colonial Williamsburg brings students into the heart of history by using modern technology to tell the stories of America’s past. We aim to share our rich history and encourage citizen engagement through publications, online games, podcasts, music, photographs, videos, classroom guides, and teacher training.
