Nobody does it better than this amazing presentation of everything that was best in colonial life - from clothes to crockery, guns to toys & just about everything in between.

Check your daily program for guided tours at the museum. The tour for the ceramics dept. was very informative.

Included in the cost of Historic Williamsburg, stop in and spent some quality time looking over the collection. Lots to see and admire.

Both of these museums are under one roof now and easy to view everything by winding around the rooms. There is a little of everything depicting the Colonial era of the US.

DeWitt and Abby Rockefeller are in the same building with one admission price, The furniture, china, sterling, guns, history of pianos are amazing. Take a break from the heat or the cold and enjoy what lies within.
