Curator's Artifact Tour
Wednesday, July 23 2014 at 3:00 PM
Curator's Artifact Tours are conducted at 3:00 pm on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month beginning April 10 through October. Tours start from the Pocahontas statue.

Senior archaeological curator Bly Straube provides an intimate, behind-the-scenes tour of the artifact collection of James Fort. This 90-minute guided program begins with a brief overview of the Jamestown Rediscovery project and offers a rare glimpse of the vault where more than one million artifacts recovered during excavations are housed. Straube will highlight important finds and discuss how artifacts tell the story of Jamestown's early years. After the tour, guests will have time to explore the Nathalie P. and Alan M. Voorhees Archaearium where galleries of selected archaeological artifacts are displayed.

Tour members must purchase a tour ticket online in advance or at the Visitor Center by 2:30 p.m. on the day of the tour. Reservations and tickets are valid only on the date specified. There will be no refunds unless the tour is canceled by Preservation Virginia.

The price is $40, which includes a 7-Day Admission Ticket to Historic Jamestowne and Yorktown Battlefield.
