I grew up visiting Duke Homestead, and over the years I've come to appreciate it more. So much of Durham's history is rooted here, with tobacco farming, and it's amazing to see how much it impacted our communities and state. Touring the property doesn't take all that long, but I recommend a good few hours at the homestead to browse through the museum, and read up on everything. I think every Durham resident should visit the Duke Homestead at some point!
*I wouldn't recommend bringing little kids under the age of 7 or 8... you want them to be old enough to sort of understand where you are, and to be respectful of the museum and grounds! We left our little guy at home when we recently visited, and boy was I glad :)
