Near the battlefield where allied American and French forces won the decisive battle of the American Revolution in 1781, the Yorktown Victory Center chronicles the Revolutionary period, from colonial unrest to the formation of the new nation.
The story of America’s evolution from colonial status to nationhood is told though films, exhibits and participatory experiences inside a new museum building and outdoor living history at a re-created Continental Army encampment and Revolution-era farm. The state-operated museum of the American Revolution is an excellent starting point for a tour of Yorktown.
Work is now completed on transforming the Yorktown Victory Center into the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. Expansive permanent exhibition galleries and a new introductory film can be viewed in the recently completed building, and visitors can tour expanded and upgraded outdoor settings for the encampment and farm.
