The award winning Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum is the first institution in the United States devoted exclusively to collecting, exhibiting and researching American folk art. Its broad collection of folk works -- primitives, whirligigs, weather vanes, carvings and toys -- represent many diverse cultural traditions and geographic regions. The museum is located on South England Street across from the Williamsburg Lodge and is open daily. Hours vary seasonally. Admission is by Colonial Williamsburg Admission or Museum Ticket.
The DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum, formerly named the DeWitt Wallace Gallery, is Colonial Williamsburg's award winning decorative arts museum, is supported by the DeWitt Wallace Fund for Colonial Williamsburg and displays the foundation's permanent collection of English and American antiques. Entered through the reconstructed Public Hospital of 1773, the gallery is on Francis Street near Merchants Square in Williamsburg. Please see the Museum's website for hours and admission fees.
