I quickly took a walk away from the historical area of Colonial Williamsburg to find the Art Museums. I arrived with very little time remaining before closing. Checking in at the front desk, I was asked to put the things I carried into a locker before proceeding to the museum.
I knew I would not be able to see both sides of the museum, so I selected the folk art side. Some of the contents on this side were purchased in the early days for the historical district, but they were inauthentic additions. That doesn't mean they lost their historic value; it just means they needed to be taken in a more authentic context.
In the restroom, the instructions for washing hands were appropriate to the setting: "Wash your hands to the tune of Yankee Doodle Dandy!"
Afterward, there was a concert on the lawn by a Jimmy Buffet tribute band. I spent a little time there, but Buffet is not my musician (with literally every song being about drinking alcohol), and I needed to eventually get back to the hotel to cool off before another interesting evening activity.
