Furniture and Decorative Arts of Tryon Palace Tour: From Paintings and Porcelain to Tea Tables and Toys

June 14, 2024
10 – 11 a.m.

Visit the Palace for a morning tour of some of our hidden gems including wonderful furniture, ceramics, silver, and paintings. This new tour has been developed by two long-time docents and Collections staff. Learn where these objects came from, their history, and all their quirks and secrets. A member of the Collections team will open desks and drawers, allowing visitors an up-close look at these seldom-seen objects and furniture details.

The tour requires a minimum of 4 tickets sold by 5pm the day before the tour. There is a maximum of 15 tickets sold.

Pick up your tickets for this tour at the Waystation at 610 Pollock Street (across the street from the Palace front gates). This tour begins at 10 a.m. so plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to that time to get your wristband and instructions.

NOTE: This tour does NOT include the full tour of the Palace nor access to our ticketed Galleries at the History Center. Those tickets are a separate purchase.

Next Decorative Arts Tour is September 13, 2024
