Colonial Williamsburg Admission

Colonial Williamsburg

Admission to all of Colonial Williamsburg’s historic sites, trade shops and art museums, with complimentary shuttle service and parking, are included in your voucher. 

A day at Colonial Williamsburg begins at the Regional Visitor Center. Find the latest information on current activities and events and plan your visit to this renowned historical city. Watch the film Williamsburg—the Story of a Patriot for an introduction to the history of Williamsburg.

From here, it’s a short walk across the pedestrian bridge to life in the 18th century. Colonial Williamsburg covers more than 300 acres, with 88 original 18th-century buildings, plus hundreds of homes, stores and public buildings that have been rebuilt on their original foundations. Meet the townspeople, tradespeople, shopkeepers, political figures, women and the enslaved who call Williamsburg home. Learn about their hopes, struggles and fears in these uncertain times. Explore the challenges of daily life set against the backdrop of revolution and look for opportunities to play a role as a citizen of colonial Williamsburg.

At the Governor's Palace, enter the years immediately before the Revolution and experience the grandeur of royal government in Virginia just before its collapse. Step into the tumultuous year of 1776 at the Capitol, colonial Virginia’s seat of power. Experience the stark contrasts of freedom and slavery at the house of one of the most prominent families in Virginia at the Peyton Randolph House. Watch a blacksmith take a red-hot iron from the fire of his forge and, with hammer in hand, beat it into a variety of tools, hardware and weapons at Anderson’s Blacksmith Shop and Public Armoury.

See how and where the residents of Williamsburg made a living. Explore the buildings where revolutionary ideas were born, discussed and disputed. Get an intimate glimpse into 18th-century life with an invitation to enter local homes and gardens.

Hungry? Enjoy a mixture of restaurants, bars, lounges and cafés, for a historically inspired family meal or an intimate evening of creative cuisine. There are also more than 20 unique stores for the perfect gift, souvenir or addition to any home.

This was the best thing for our trip. We got our badges at the visitor center the first day and then went to see everything. We purchased the 7 day pass which gave us entry to everything. Well worth the money.

We spent 2 days touring the exhibits and demonstrations in Colonial Williamsburg and loved it even with the rain on the first day. We had come prepared with rain gear so we were able to spend the day walking to many of the exhibits because they are in the buildings and as a result the show went on. The second day was a vacation dream with Sunny skies, mild temperatures and a light breeze and that made it perfect for one of the carriage rides with the informative driver whose demeanor fit the experience perfectly. We were able to interact with several of the artisans, craftspeople and presenters and I must complement all for the excellent presentations we were able to witness. This would be a great adult excursion or family exploration to get a feel for where the United States came from.

This card covered just about everything we wanted to do in the Williamsburg area. It is so nice to present your card and not have to worry about payment at each event. It's convenient and accepted without a problem. Very cost effective. I highly recommend this card.

Loved this package! So much to see! You need 7 full days to see it all. Museums were amazing and the towns are a must see, even if you don't like history. Relearned so much about the beginnings of our nation!

The package for 3 days at Williamsburg was great. The only problem was we thought it encompassed the 3 towns of Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown, but it did not. We chose the 3 day pass for 50/adult. We thought it was to use 3 out of 7 days, but found out we had to use 3 consecutive days. To get all of the towns we would have had to chose the highest priced package, but that was not clear in the advertising. So, we had to pay extra for the museum in Yorktown and the Jamestowne settlement. Also, we were lucky enough to have a National Parks Old Age pass yes, we are seniors to enter the visitor centers museums, otherwise we would have had to pay extra for those too. I would suggest you call the centers directly and ask questions before you book online to make sure things haven't changed. We found several times that the charging venues had changed since the website was written being told we notify the online vendors, but we cannot guarantee they change the information. Also, we found out some of the things we would have liked to have done didn't start until mid-April.

It was a great trip and I would recommend it highly!

There is so much to do and you will need more than one day to cover everything. I loved the witch trial and enjoyed the participation as a member of the jury. When I was in Williamsburg it was so hot and so I didn't have the energy to cover as much as I would have liked but I still found it worth the effort.
