Christmastide in Virginia recalls 17th- and 18th-century holiday traditions through special interpretive programs and musical entertainment of the period.

At the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, hear accounts of 18th-century Christmas traditions and winter in military encampments during the American Revolution and glimpse holiday preparations on a Revolution-era farm.

At Jamestown Settlement, accessible with a combination ticket, compare and contrast English Christmas customs of the 17th century with how the season may have been observed in the difficult early years of the Jamestown colony. 

The museums are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily year-round; closed on Christmas and New Year's days. Living-history areas open 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Parking is free at both museums.
