Follow a highly informed docent through the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown and come away with a remarkably thorough understanding of the nation’s founding. The museum galleries and dioramas contain hundreds of artifacts that tell the story of the American Revolution, from its origins in the mid-1700s to the early years of the United States. Displays include rare British muskets, American rifles and sabres, a coronation portrait of King George III and a life-size statue of George Washington that was once exhibited in the U.S. Capitol. Short films run continuously that show the complexity and diversity of the colonial American society. Outside the museum, you will find replicas of a continental army encampment and a Revolution-era farm. Costumed historical interpreters will describe both venues in detail. You may see cooks preparing colonial dishes, tobacco fields being worked and demonstrations of military drills.
