Inclement Weather

At any given time in Virginia, you might see all four seasons in one day. It’s best to bring layers and check the forecast ahead of time when visiting Colonial Williamsburg.

During rain, storms, or extreme heat, we encourage guests to explore The Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg, as well as take tours of the Governor's Palace and The Capitol, which are all indoor activities.

We monitor major storms closely. We know that guests look forward to their visits to Colonial Williamsburg and that many travel great distances to be here, so we do everything in our power to stay open in the event of major weather events. However, we prioritize guest and staff safety, so can require operational changes in extreme cases.

In the event of inclement weather, please pay attention to official weather alerts and use your discretion with regards to personal safety. You can find any closings or delays on this webpage. If you have additional questions or need assistance with hotel and dining reservations, admission and program tickets, or have general questions The Colonial Williamsburg Reservation Team (1-800-447-8679) will assist you.
