Colonial Williamsburg Photo Gallery

The Largest Living Museum in the United States


A visit to Colonial Williamsburg in America's Historic Triangle is a visit to the past in the thriving 18th-century capital of England's oldest, largest and wealthiest colony, and later, the center of power and independence in the new nation. Since September 1932, when the reconstructed Raleigh Tavern opened to the public as the first exhibition building, more than 100 million visitors have explored the 301-acre Historic Area, the largest living history museum in the United States.

With 88 original buildings, as well as hundreds of reconstructed sites and 90-acres of formal and utilitarian gardens and greens, Colonial Williamsburg offers visitors the chance to experience the sights, sounds and atmosphere of Virginia on the eve of the American Revolution. Colonial Williamsburg, which is located between Richmond and Norfolk, is open 365 days a year from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with additional evening programs.
