Waterman's Museum, Riverwalk Landing, Yorktown, Virginia




The Waterman's Museum in Yorktown, Virginia is a unique tribute to those who have earned their living from the sea, Chesapeake Bay and rivers in Virginia. The museum was founded as part of the 200th anniversary of the Siege of Yorktown in which local waterman assisted the French Navy in bottling up the British and bringing an end to the war. The buildings which now form the museum were donated to the cause and moved from the opposite side of the York River to their current location in 1989.  The museum offers insight into the lives, history, and equipment of those who work the water.
