  • 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. :-)
  • Nice place to spend several hours. Informative and helpful guides.
  • Wonderful place to visit or as a venue for an event. Great & helpful staff, amazing atmosphere & filled with history.
  • You need a few hours dedicated for just here to really enjoy it as there are many interactive displays.
