  • New Bern was actually the capitol of North Carolina at one time. We did not expect to find so much historical information available before we went to New Bern. Wonderful!  more »
  • Visited Trying Palace on a Day Pass, loved the "palace" tour (so weird to see King George & Charlotte of Mecklenburg on the walls!) and the Stanly and Dixon houses. All tours were superinformative. Yo...  more »
  • What a lovely day we spent visiting the North Carolina History Center and Tryon Palace! They're two different buildings located next to each other. The NC History Center is the place to begin and get ...  more »

  • We came here today for the first time and had a ball. There is so much to do here that I never knew about. The employees are very friendly and helpful. If you have kids with you be sure to check out the family center and go in the time machine, my 8 year old nephew loved it! With all of the activities and so much to see, the admission price is well worth it!
  • Really cool place to go to with a nice surrounding area. Worth making a stop and taking a tour of the palace. This is also a place where they shot some of the scenes from the TV series Sleepy Hollow. You buy the tickets around the corner at the museum, which is another nice place and I recommend eating there at Lawsons Cafe.
  • 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.
  • Great family place very educational lot of interactive exhibits. Great place to be on a hot day that's for sure.
  • 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. :-)
