As of 2015, the website for Colonial Williamsburg, ColonialWilliamsburg.com, offers tickets for purchase online. The website offers four types of tickets: sampler tickets, single-day tickets, multiday passes and an annual pass.
The sampler ticket includes entrance to two of the 22 trade shops, the public gaol and a single historic home, while the other tickets include all the shops, 10 other public areas in addition to the gaol, and historic homes and gardens. The other tickets include live reenactments, two art museums, the governor's palace and the capitol building. The sampler ticket and one-day ticket are good for only a single day. The multiday pass allows entry for the rest of 2015, and the annual pass allows entry every day for a year from the date of purchase.
