Some visiting relatives and myself went to the Duke Homestead, as they had seen many of the other attractions in the area before. We thought it would be like an hour and go, but we were pleasantly surprised and stayed longer. There's a fixed exhibit on tobacco growing and the Duke family, supplemented by a 15-min video, and an hour-long guided tour of the grounds. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic, making the tour a real learning experience. Well worth the trip!
There's also seasonal exhibits (e.g. demonstrations of the tobacco-growing and processing) throughout the year, so I hope to return for one.
And it's free!
