Learn more about Historic Jamestowne’s programming for children and families. In addition, Jamestown Rediscovery archaeologists excavate daily, weather permitting, and are always happy to talk to young visitors. And best of all, kids age 15 & younger always get free admission to Historic Jamestowne!

Family-Friendly Programming
Most of Historic Jamestowne’s programming, unless noted, is suitable for all ages. However some programs are ideal for families, as they are interactive and free-flow, allowing guests to come and go as they like.

Children’s Programming
Children’s programs are exclusively for junior guests although they require an adult chaperone and may be recommended for specific age groups.
