We had an absolutely amazing experience. Our docent was extremely knowledgeable about the tobacco process as he himself grew up on a tobacco farm. I knew almost nothing about the tobacco industry and now I feel very informed about Durham's contribution and Duke's involvement in the industry; and provides an interesting view into Antebellum farm life. Along with numerous unique artifacts, this museum is a must for visitors to the Durham area.

Anyone coming to visit, or live, in the Raleigh Durham area needs to see this. Learned so much interesting history. Highly recommend this place. Make sure to see the video and a guided tour.

Very beautiful and well maintained historic site. Staff is knowledgeable, kind, and very helpful. Excellent hands on learning activities for the kids. Grounds are well maintained. Restrooms are clean, picnic area has sun & shade options; everything is very well done. Also serves as a wonderful reminder how lucky we are to live in the 21st Century!!
