First Africans Commemoration

Jamestown Settlement honors the legacy of the first recorded Africans brought to Virginia in 1619 by reflecting on history through an African American lens.

Learn about African and African American experiences in 17th-century Virginia through Jamestown Settlement’s expansive gallery exhibits, dramatic films and engaging interactives that share the story of Virginia Indian, English and West Central African cultures.

The First Africans Commemoration special event is included with museum admission: $18.00 for adults, $9.00 for ages 6-12, and free for children ages 5 and under.

Residents of James City County, York County and the City of Williamsburg, including William & Mary students, receive free admission with proof of residency.
