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.
