Several state historic sites have raised their fees to ensure that they can continue to preserve North Carolina’s past and give you the best possible experience. Here’s a quick rundown of the changes.

Admission prices to the Thomas Wolfe Memorial in Asheville are now $5 for adults and $2 for children.

At Historic Bath, admission prices for the Bonner House and the Palmer-Marsh House have increased to $2 per house for adults and $1 per house for children. At both sites, groups of ten or more will still receive half off the regular rates.

General admission to the N.C. Transportation Museum is now $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and active military, $4 for children between the ages of three and 12 and free for children younger than three. For groups of 15 or more the rates are $4.50 for adults and $3.50 for seniors, active military personnel and children between three and 12.

A public hearing on the changes in the price structure at the Museum will be held on August 16 at 10 a.m. in Room 2172A-2 of the Dobbs Building at 430 N. Salisbury St in Raleigh. Public comments can also be submitted in writing between August 9 and August 31. 

Finally, while admission to Reed Gold Mine remains free, the fee for gold panning is now $3 per person, with a $1 discount per person for groups of 10 or more. Admission to the majority of the 27 historic sites is still free. If you have any questions regarding the changes, don’t hesitate to contact us.
