The “Honoring Service to America” ticket provides admission to Colonial Williamsburg’s Revolutionary City, including the daily “Revolution in the Streets” program, the Capitol and the Governor’s Palace, 30 historic trades sites and the military encampment, the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg and Bassett Hall, the Williamsburg home of founder John D. Rockefeller Jr. and his wife, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller. The tickets also include an Orientation Walk, a tour that provides an overview of Colonial Williamsburg and its restoration, free shuttle bus service to and from the Regional Visitor Center, a viewing of the movie, “Williamsburg: the Story of a Patriot,” and free parking at the Visitor Center.

The service member need not be present, and free “Honoring Service to America” tickets will be provided to dependent family members of currently deployed troops with appropriate identification. Military veterans who separated before retirement can bring a copy of their honorable discharge paperwork, form DD 214, as identification of service. These weekend-long admission tickets are available at the Visitor Center. 

A Memorial Day commemorative program begins at 10 a.m. Monday, May 25 on the Palace Green. Wreaths will be placed at the Palace, Bruton Parish Church and the French gravesite to honor those interred on or near those sites from the American Revolution, the Civil War and other conflicts. A procession with Fife and Drum support will begin at the Palace and proceed to each site, where prayers will be recited and volleys fired. This service is free and open to the public.
