  • Nice museum. Great volunteer tour guide. Educational. A lot of information about the tobacco industry and the Duke family. Their philanthropy continues today.
  • Sweet little museum that's free to visit. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Plenty of parking and easy to find. They have a number of special events each year where vendors set up stalls and kids can do activities. If you have moved to Durham from elsewhere in the state/country/world, visiting Duke Homestead will provide you with all the necessary information to become a Bull City expert!
  • It was an awesome school trip for the second graders. The children, and the parents, loved it. Very educational and fun.
  • Great place to learn the history of tobacco in NC, and you can't understand NC without understanding tobacco. We did the moonlight tour, which was really great.
  • We went here for Pork, Pickles and Pie. The museum was informative, the house interpretation was great and historically accurate and my kids enjoyed getting to taste various pies.
