Despite the reviews, we gave this a try as we purchased the combo tickets with Jamestown Settlement. We were probably in and out in 1 hour. I am sure it will be great when the renovations are complete.
The only reason I did not give this a higher rating is because we visited during the construction, so we did not get to see all the things that will be available soon. Also, the film we saw was made in the seventies- they seriously do need to do an updated one, the picture and sound was not good. The... 更多
We visited the Jamestown Settlement the day before we visited the Yorktown Victory Center. The ticket we purchased included admission to both attractions. While not as large as the Jamestown Settlement, the Yorktown Victory Center was very enjoyable. The facility was so new and looked very nice. I think they were still constructing some of the displays. But, what impressed... 更多
This site was a bit of a letdown. There was not much discussion of what happened at Yorktown, except for the video. There was a village/farm to visit, and the one thing that I enjoyed most was the tour of the herb garden. Had this not been combined with the Jamestown ticket, it would have not been worth the cost.
We went to this site a year ago while construction for the new center was in progress. This year we went by to see if the new center was open. To our delight it was. The outdoor living museum is open and the theater is open we watched one of the three movies available. My advice is ti wait until... 更多
It is not a huge area but it does cover a lot of information. Most intimate interaction with period people and hands on type things in the recreation area. They are preparing to enlarge and add additional stuff. Well worth attending. Half day event and a small fee.
This is a new facility and the artifacts which are housed in the older facility will not be relocated for another year. The movies, there are three, are good indicators of how history changes. The movie from the 1970's and that from the 1990's is a bit more history based. The movie produced for the new center in the last... 更多
Most of the indoor exhibits were not available because they are under construction. I saw one of the 2 films offered and it was very good - educational and well presented. The outdoor exhibits included reenact-ors that did a nice job of explaining and demonstrating their specific skill. I really enjoyed the presentation by the Surgeon - funny, a little... 更多
Tip 1 - Go to Yorktown Battlefield first and then go to Yorktown Victory Center. We thoroughly enjoyed the interactive encampment and farm. Galleries are being added and we will have to go back to see them.
Don't waste your time or money on this! There are so many better living history and historical sites to see. They are planning a bigger, better site - we sat through their ads for it over and over again in the five minutes before one of their movies, one of three we were told we could see - fool me... 更多
Yorktown Victory Center is in the process of transitioning to become the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. They have recently moved into an impressive new building, but none of the indoor exhibits or galleries are open at this time. The village and military camp are in very confined areas at this time. By "late 2016" these will be expanded, and... 更多
Stopped by on the way home from Williamsburg and continues to be a very good place to see history. Everyone knows the Battle of Bunker Hill and Paul Revere's ride, but the back end or more importantly, the final battle battle of the revolutionary war is no where well as known and the Battle and eventual surrender at Yorktown does... 更多
