The Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation is an agency of the Commonwealth of Virginia that operates two living-history museums, Jamestown Settlement and American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. These two museums feature outdoor living-history areas in which costumed historical interpreters describe and demonstrate life in 17th- and 18th-century Virginia. Jamestown Settlement features re-creations of a Powhatan Indian village, three ships, and James Fort. The American Revolution Museum at Yorktown offers a Continental Army encampment and Revolution-era Virginia farm. Our mission is to educate and to promote understanding and awareness of Virginia’s role in the creation of the United States of America. The Foundation is accredited by the American Association of Museums.
