The Visitor center has a short film and a small exhibit of Thomas Wolfe.
The highlight is the 45minutes guided tour of the Old Kentucky Home which the author grew up. The docent tied in the history, events of Asheville while giving us the tour of the house. This basically gives you an orientation of old Ashevile as well. This tour gives you a lot of information but in a manner that is light, easy to absorb.
I did not know about the author prior to the tour and still find this interesting.
After the tour, buy a book and walk 5 minutes to Park Square or Biltmore Ave. for coffee and a good read.
Admission is $5.00 which is a great bargain, and free parking on site.
