This is one of our family's favorite places. We buy yearly passes so we can go as much as we want. The museums are great. They are currently featuring an exhibit about quilting and because of that my 6 year old son and I are making a quilt by hand so he can learn how it's done and how much work is involved. They have some great educational resources in the bookstore at the visitors center, as well as the book called "My Travel Journal". This is a sort of workbook for kids that they can take pictures and write down their thoughts and when they are done have a little scrapbook. My 6 year old and I are working on his and he loves it.

We just spent a week in Colonial Williamsburg and we bought annual passes through the Homeschool program done via the group sales department. Twice a year they organize events for homeschoolers during a two week period and engage the children with hands on activities. If you get the chance to go... its well worth your time. Check out www.history.org for more into.
