We visited on Veterans' Day this year, and watched the presentation with our daughter's family including three grandchildren between 4 and 9 years old. It is a seasonal presentation, done each Sunday between Memorial Day and Labor Day and on the 4th of July. I'm not sure if it's always done on Veterans' Day, but it was this year. The children never made a sound. They watched the whole thing, mesmerized. You actually become a delegate, the actors sit in period clothing in the audience, and while the speakers sometimes rise and walk to the front while speaking, they often speak in their seats. We were amazed at how incredible it was. The graveyard is another thing not to miss.
I wrote that there is no fee for this attraction, it is run by donations. We donated willingly, as the presentation was so compelling and well done. If you are in Richmond, make sure your trip includes a time period where you can visit St. John's and see the reenactment.
