Hampton History Museum
Build a City
Join the fun of building a model of downtown Hampton using cardboard boxes and other recyclable material like the popular video game Minecraft!

The Hampton History Museum contains an impressive collection. Start your tour in a Kecoughtan Indian longhouse, pass through the hold of a tobacco ship and visit the ruins of the city burned to the ground during the Civil War.

The Hampton History Museum serves to increase the awareness and understanding of the history of Hampton by maintaining an educational and research center for the collection, exhibition, interpretation, preservation and promotion of the vast historic resources of the City.
