The Watermen’s Museum – A Must “Sea” in Historic Yorktown
We all know water is one of the essential elements of life. It waded its way into the history books as early as the creation of the Bible. But did you also know that in Yorktown, Virginia, there’s a quaint, scenic, historical museum that documents the history of Chesapeake Bay watermen from pre-Colonial to modern times?
From weekly farmers markets to our annual wine festival to our big Fourth of July fireworks show—there are so many events taking place in Historic Yorktown. But what do you need to know before you come?
Immerse yourself in an area as rich in American history as it is modern-day charm. Whether you want to sail into the sunset or paddle the river at your own pace, your next adventure awaits. You'll find guides on Segways and tours on the Battlefield. There are museums, waterfront restaurants, and a public beach. Getting here is the easy part. The hard part is deciding what to do first!
Our area is rich in talent and we believe in supporting arts in the community. We'll give you sneak peeks at their work, introduce you to the artists themselves, and keep you "in the know" about all the special performances happening in and around the waterfront every month.
We are proud to be a part of America's story and we're excited to share with you all of the special events, museum exhibitions, and National Parks Service programs that take place throughout the year that are seeded in history and packed with fun for the whole family!
