Colonial Williamsburg will pause some Historic Area, hospitality and admissions operations Jan. 3-27, 2017 to focus on preservation and training during the seasonal lull in visitation.

We still have plenty to see and do! Go on a carriage ride and surround yourself in the beauty of the 18th century and experience Colonial Williamsburg’s winter charm. Tour our two world-class Art Museums, take a spin on the ice at Liberty’s Ice Pavilion, and browse dozens of shops in Merchants Square for the perfect memento to remember your trip.
