On October 19, 1781, the decisive military campaign of the American Revolution culminated with the British surrender to American and French forces under the command of George Washington.

The Siege of Yorktown effectively ended the six-year struggle of the Revolutionary War and set the stage for a new government and nation. Today the Yorktown Victory Center, a museum of the American Revolution, chronicles America's evolution from colonial status to nationhood through a unique blend of timeline, film, thematic exhibits and outdoor living history.

An open-air exhibit walkway details events that led to American colonies to declare independence from Britain. Indoor exhibition galleries portray the Declaration of Independence as a revolutionary document that attracted international attention, recount the war's impact on ten ordinary men and women who left a record of their experiences, highlight the roles of different nationalities at the Siege of Yorktown, and explore the story of the Betsy and other British ships lost in the York River during the siege. Exhibits also describe how people from many different cultures shaped a new society and the development of a new government with the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Outdoors, visitors can explore a re-created Continental Army encampment, where historical interpreters describe and depict daily life of American soldiers at the end of the war. A replica of a 1780s farm, complete with a house, kitchen, tobacco barn, crop fields, and herb and vegetable garden shows how many Americans lived during the Revolutionary era. This is an amazing experience that you truly will never forget!

Location: A Colonial Christmas
From the first "American" Christmas celebration held by English colonists still sailing towards the new land in 1606 to a look at the average traditions of a 1780's Virginia farmer, A Colonial Christmas is an interesting glimpse into America's holiday history.

We found the area to be interesting. I enjoyed the museum. I liked seeing the items found in the vessel and really got a kick out of seeing the rigging site on the river. My son had fun chasing the hinny chicken and filming the event. My family had a relaxing and informative day.

The cannon re-enactment was spectacular. I only wish we had more time to spend there without the kids.
