For Kids & Families

let the adventure begin

If your child has ever loved digging or reading stories of buried treasure, bring them to Historic Jamestowne to see archaeology in action. Your family can share in the moment of discovery, witness ongoing excavations and ask questions of the archaeologists as they work!

Engage in hands-on activities at our new Ed Shed. This space provides an interactive experience for younger visitors and families including the chance to discover real artifacts just like the archaeologists!

If you cannot make it to the island, we have online activities to dig into the history and science of Jamestown. You can print out colorful posters, get directions to crafts and projects, or research the famous people of early Jamestown for a classroom assignment.
