Jamestown Settlement - groups
Jamestown Settlement, a museum of 17th-century Virginia, explores the world of America's first permanent English colony. Exhibition galleries and an introductory film, 1607: A Nation Takes Root, trace Jamestown's beginnings in England and the first century of the Virginia colony and describe the Powhatan Indian, English and African cultures that converged in 17th-century Virginia. Outdoors, costumed historical interpreters depict 1600s life at re-creations of the colonists' fort, the three ships that arrived from England in 1607, a Powhatan Indian village and at a seasonal riverfront discovery area.
General tours explore history through role-playing, examination of primary sources and object analysis. Student tours and programs are correlated to the Virginia Standards of Learning, National Standards for History, National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies and Common Core.
