The Jamestown Settlement was the first English colony in North America that was founded successfully. There were many other attempts at colonizing the new world before this but all of them failed up to this point.

This area has many exciting attractions both new and old to attract visitors. There are many exhibits here to show how life would have been for these early settlers. There are even models of 3 ships that sailed over to the new world from England.

Exhibits here include Powhatan Village, Film and Galleries, Jamestown Settlement Ships, James Fort, Riverfront Discovery Area, Jamestown Chronology, A History of Jamestown, Werowocomoco, From Africa to Virginia, Military Through the Ages, Jamestown and Bermuda, John White Watercolors and many more.
