North Carolina History Center to Reopen Saturday

NEW BERN, N.C. – October 19, 2018

Tryon Palace is pleased to announce that the North Carolina History Center is ready to reopen to the public Saturday, October 20, at 9 a.m. The History Center has been recovering from the adverse affects of Hurricane Florence, and will reopen limited galleries, including the Regional History Center and Gateway Gallery. The Pepsi Family Center and Duffy Gallery, which currently hosts an exhibit on Barbour Boats, will remain closed.

Due to limited galleries being open at this time, Tryon Palace invites visitors to the North Carolina History Center to view the open galleries for free through January 1.

Other ticketing options include a Gardens Pass that costs $6 for adults and $3 for youth, or a discounted, group-rate “Governor’s Pass,” that includes tours of open buildings and grounds, including the Governor’s Palace, Kitchen Office, Stables, and the Stanly House. The New Bern Academy Museum is also open free to the public, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays.

Tickets for the historic grounds or buildings may be purchased at the Waystation on the corner of George and Pollock Streets, or at the North Carolina History Center.

At this time, the Dixon House remains closed. Please pay attention to or our social media for more updates about exhibit and site openings, as well as upcoming and rescheduled events.
