Educational Events

Learn While Having Fun

Getting an education doesn't have to mean sitting in a classroom. In Greater Williamsburg, get your fill of knowledge from a variety of events and classes; sit in on jewelry making classes, or walk through a demonstration from colonial times. Get up close and personal with the wild animals of Williamsburg, or do it the old fashioned way with a sit in lecture on the history of wars in the US. There's a class for everyone here in Williamsburg.

Take a trip to the risky, rugged realities of colonial America. Of the original 104 settlers who arrived at Jamestown in the spring of 1607, fewer than 40 survived the first twelve months.
