VA residents can pay for a day and Get the Rest of the Year Free at Colonial Williamsburg

While Williamsburg area residents have their Good Neighbor Pass program that doesn’t apply to folks who live outside of the area.

Colonial Williamsburg now invites Virginia residents and those over 50 who live anywhere in the nation to pay for a day and receive unlimited admission to the Revolutionary City and the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg through the end of 2012.

This limited-time promotion gives Virginia residents and anyone over 50 the opportunity to experience Colonial Williamsburg’s seasonal offerings again and again. This special pass can be purchased for $39.95 for adults and $20.95 for children ages six – 12 through Oct. 31. Proof of residence and eligibility required.

“The Revolutionary City is absolutely stunning in the fall and holidays, and we are thrilled to give Virginia residents and seniors an opportunity to enjoy it through both seasons for one low price,” said Skip Ferebee, Colonial Williamsburg’s director of admission sales and consumer development.

Revolutionary City® programs tell the story of the 18th-century capital on the eve of the American Revolution. Discover the tools and techniques Historic Trades carpenters use to prepare building materials to further the Revolutionary War effort. At Great Hopes Plantation, families explore the day-to-day lives of free and enslaved Virginians on this interactive living history site.

Three new exhibitions open this fall in the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg. “American Folk Portraits” and “Tramp Art” open Saturday, Sept. 29 at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, and “Changing Keys: Keyboard Instruments for America, 1700-1830” opens Nov. 22 at the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum.

Colonial Williamsburg lights up the holiday season, which officially begins Nov. 23. During the holiday season, guests can enjoy Grand Illumination with spectacular fireworks. Children of all ages have an opportunity to try out various chores, lessons, toys and games at the Benjamin Powell House. The Colonial Garden provides inspiration for 18th-century holiday décor for any home. Guests to the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg can admire a 16-foot tree in the museum central court that is surrounded by glittering silver and gold stars. The tree features homemade ornaments made by generations of guests, employees and volunteers.

The pass includes:

– Unlimited access to the Revolutionary City sites including 35 exhibition sites and 16 trade shops;

– Tours of the Governor’s Palace, Capitol, R. Charlton’s Coffeehouse and Great Hopes Plantation;

– The new Anderson’s Blacksmith Shop and Public Armoury site that reflects the complexity and urgency of mounting a war effort against the world’s most powerful 18th-century nation; and

– Access to the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum, the home of the Foundation’s renowned collections of more than 60,000 treasures dating from 1600 through 1830, the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum that houses one of the finest collections of American folk art and Bassett Hall, the Williamsburg home of John D. Rockefeller Jr. and his wife, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller.
