The landscaped gardens adjacent to Tryon Palace are a joy to experience.

Centerpiece of New Bern History. We recommend the total tour- 45 mionutes through the palace with great history background, plus access to gardens. They have Christmas program as well as spring gardens. .

Interesting history tour Three of us enjoyed the tour from the golf cart driver to the tour guides at the Stanley house & palace to the gardens and kitchen. Well done by all presenters. .

A big place You enter in to an enormous area. Seemed like a lot of wasted space.had to search around for the history area.BUT once found,it was great***so much to see and read! Well done! .

Colonial Governors ruled, legislators debated, patriots gathered and George Washington danced. At Tryon Palace, where British rule once flourished, American independence took root and the state of North Carolina was born. Here you can still experience the adventure of North Carolina’s earliest beginnings and a living history like no other. Guided tours, live re-enactments and conversations with costumed interpreters from centuries past bring history to life in vivid detail at the Governor’s Palace, Gardens and Historic Homes. And, at the new high-tech North Carolina History Center, interactive games and hands-on exhibits delight visitors young and old. Whether you’re exploring one of our riverside gardens or sharpening your skills as a quilter, printer, ship’s captain or blacksmith, there are endless opportunities for making cherished family memories at Tryon Palace.
