Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Victory Center, state-operated living-history museums, are unaffected by the federal government shutdown and are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Visitors should travel to Jamestown Settlement via Route 31 (Jamestown Road) during the temporary closure of a section of the Colonial Parkway.

History is an adventure at Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Victory Center.  Experience the story of America’s beginnings – from the founding of America’s first permanent English colony in 1607 to the Revolution and the establishment of a new nation almost two centuries later.  Explore the museums’ exhibition galleries and learn about life in the 17th and 18th centuries in the outdoor living-history areas.
