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. Share in the moment of discovery, witness ongoing excavations, and ask questions of the archaeologists as they work! Kids can even become Junior Rangers as they explore the island or learn the art of the halberd from Captain Brewster. JR Kids at Home offers downloadable coloring pages and activities to dig into the history and science of Jamestown from anywhere. Engage in hands-on activities at our Ed Shed. This space provides an interactive experience for younger visitors and families including the chance to discover real artifacts just like the archaeologists!
