Tips for Families

Expect to be a participant - if you wait to be wowed or entertained - you will probably be bored. Ask questions! Our kids have learned to ask the tradespeople.

The Williamsburg Lodge has an indoor pool and an outdoor pool but they are across the street. There are changing rooms.

Eh.. i wasn't a fan. I usually can be... But something about a low attended overcast day, made the experience a bit dreadful. The place was understaffed, the interpreters were uninterested in chatting. Almost seemed like they were avoiding me and my small group of friends. I was confused because all the things that I was told about the place... "fun, hands on, interactive, fresh" just were not so. I think that this place WAS a great place and it COULD have GREAT potential is better staffing, stronger programing, and new ideas are introduced. I think because of staff who were so uninterested in chatting with me, the hospitality level that CW boasts of was totally lacking and even a bit disrespectful! I'm not ...
