Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation

Williamsburg , VA
United States

The Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation is an educational agency of the Commonwealth of Virginia offering programs and resources about early American history through its museums – Jamestown Settlement and the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. 


Our Mission 

The Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation shall foster through its living-history museums – Jamestown Settlement and the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown – an awareness and understanding of the early history, settlement, and development of the United States through the convergence of American Indian, European, and African cultures and the enduring legacies bequeathed to the nation. 


Virtual Learning 

Jamestown Settlement and the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown offer a range of virtual learning experiences for classrooms unable to travel to the museums or participate in a Virginia outreach program. 

Using Zoom or your classroom’s virtual learning platform, students can join a Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation educator as they explore early Virginia and United States history together. Topics examine the Powhatan Indians, early English settlement at Jamestown, three cultures that converged in Virginia, causes and events of the American Revolution and stories of real people who shaped our early history. These inquiry-based educational programs are designed to be interactive and thought provoking, allowing students to explore the past while honing their skills in critical thinking, communication and historical thinking.
