Owing to the serious health risk posed by COVID-19, which is now in the Williamsburg community, Historic Jamestowne will close at the end of business Friday, March 13 until March 31 when we will reassess the situation.
The Visitors Center, Yeardley House, Archaearium and Memorial Church will be closed, and all programs through the end of March have been cancelled. April walking tours and other programs included with an admission ticket will be assessed at the end of this month.
Jamestown Rediscovery staff will be doing our best to continue to respond to email messages and voicemail messages during the closure. No staff will be on-site to answer the main phone lines, so please leave a message and someone will return your call as soon as possible.
We will continue to follow guidance from the governor’s office, Virginia Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and will re-open when safe to do so. We appreciate your patience in this matter, and hope you will plan to visit Historic Jamestowne when we re-open.
Visitors to the site can enjoy the state of the art visitor’s center, browse artifacts in the Natalie M. and Alan P. Voorhees Archaearium, participate in guided tours and witness ongoing archaeological work.
