We made a day trip to New Bern from Raleigh specifically to visit Tryon Palace, and we discovered that we were easily able to fill the entire day with activity --- there is so much to see and do there! We arrived early in the...More
We did not purchase the full package due to a lack of time. We toured the house and the little workshops. The docents dressed in period uniforms were extremely knowledgeable and interesting people. The buildings are excellently restored and the history of the building and...More
On a recent trip to New Bern, NC, my husband and I took advantage of the all-day pass to see the Palace, gardens and History Center. Included also were admissions to two historic houses within walking distance of the Tryon, but time did not permit...More
Drove a couple of hours to tour Tryon Palace on a Saturday and was disappointed. I understand that the palace was rebuilt in the 50's because a fire destroyed it long ago. I applaud the ladies in the 50's that put the time, effort and...More

The history center itself is wheelchair accessible. There may be access in the palace, but I did not see any. The stairs are quite narrow and difficult for people with mobility issues, so you will want to check with the site. As for the historic homes, access is limited as they were built a century or more ago. Lovely gardens and walking path around the palace though not paved. The nearby riverwalk is awesome and accessible.
