Explore Artifacts at the Archaearium

Summer in Tidewater, Virginia abounds with outdoor activities. Thankfully, we also have fun indoor activities when we need to take a break in air-conditioned comfort. The Archaearium (a museum for archaological artifacts) is one of the best places to cool off, learn something, and have fun doing it.

Visit the Archaearium at Historic Jamestowne on Saturday, July 16 between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to “help the archaeologists sort through the smallest excavated material to find animal bones, shells and seeds that give us clues to life at Jamestown. Bly Straube, senior archaeological curator, shows guests some cool artifacts displayed at the Nathalie P. and Alan M. Voorhees Archaearium, and they can try our Artifact Quest scavenger hunt too. There also will be crafts to do and many exhibits to explore during this daylong adventure.” Included with $10 admission fee.

Kids 8 – 12 can also sign up for one of two summer camp sessions. Find more information at Historic Jamestowne’s calendar.
