Heading down to Williamsburg? Be sure to check out the former Yorktown Victory Center, which a $50 million makeover has transformed into the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. The new, 80,000-square-foot museum has costumed interpreters, artillery demonstrations and about 500 artifacts on display. A 4-D theater plays “The Siege of Yorktown,” with wind, smoke and the sound of cannon fire. More details here.
