    By all means, take the guided tours of the Tryon Palace and the other two houses nearby. The History Center itself is extremely nice and enjoyable. Very affordable and informative.  more »

    Visited prior to our tour of Troon Palace. A 10 minute orientation video helped to acclimate us. There are a few nice exhibits and a quaint gift shop. A good stop before touring!  more »

    Great starting point for the Tryon Palace tour. I recommend the few minutes to view the orientation video. Plenty of other NC history info to learn about at the center. The cafe/restaurant is rather good as well.

    Employees were extremely helpful! I was in search of a book I had seen on display at the Waystation. The manager indicated the one I'd seen was the last one as it was out of print and volunteered to drive to pick it up to sell it to me. Now THAT'S customer service! We just wished they sold 4x6" NC flags as my sons are collectors of flags. :-)
