We picked an on and off rainy day to visit. So didn't really take advantage of as much as we could. The archeology "tour" was just mostly talk; because of the rain they had the dig sites covered up. Listened and walked with the park...More

Very interesting site. Beautiful scenery! Amazing to see the site of first settlers. The museum is worth the money. The background helps you to appreciate the outdoor sites. We enjoyed our visit here. The $14 ticket included Yorktown museum and battlefield.
