Tryon Palace Field Trip

14 Mar 2017



Join NCHE on April 14 as we explore American history at Tryon Palace, New Bern, North Carolina!  Once the capital of North Carolina, New Bern remained a bustling port into the 19th century and was one of the state's largest towns until the 1930s.  Tryon Palace was the Royal Governor's home during the colonial period. 

Costumed historical interpreters will lead our group through the Palace and the Palace Kitchen where demonstrations of 18th century cooking techniques bring the past to life.   Exploring the intricate and elaborate Palace gardens, stables, blacksmith shop and surrounding historic homes on your own is included in the price of admission.

Our special group admission fee is only $6/student and $15/adult (a saving of more than $4 and $6 per ticket respectively).  Student prices apply to 1st through 12th graders. Children younger than 1st grade are FREE.  Plan to check in with NCHE by 10 a.m. on April 14.   Advance reservations with payment are required by 9 a.m. Wednesday, April 12.  Reservations are transferable but non-refundable.
