These two museums are hidden gems within the Historic Triangle, despite existing smack in the middle of Colonial Williamsburg. The DeWitt is a small but thorough collection of American and British antiques and interior design products. The Rockeller is, for our money, the more interesting institution. It’s filled to the brim with outsider and folk art—gorgeous creations self-made by artists who eschew conventional painting to follow their own visions. The collection ranges from folk instruments to random sculptures to the story of a wooden dog…a weird, charming and excellent museum in an unexpected location. Tickets can be bought as part of the Colonial Williamsburg entrance fees or separately at the CW visitor center.
