If you are driving to Old Salem Museums & Gardens you will want to navigate to the Old Salem Visitor Center and park in its parking lot. Current directions will be posted online here.
The Visitor Center can be navigated to by GPS via the following address: 900 Old Salem Road/Winston- Salem, NC 27101. After receiving your ticket, your group will proceed across the Heritage Bridge, which leads to the historic district and MESDA in the Frank L. Horton Museum Center. Your ticket may
be marked with a starting building, which is where you are advised to begin your tour of the district. This will help to ensure that you and your students have the best possible experience while at Old Salem.
On Mondays, when your school is participating in our Hands-on History program, our Visitor
Center will be closed. Please proceed directly to the Salt and West Street parking lot. Your
bus can be parked against the curb by the garden restrooms during your tour. Cars can be
parked in the gravel lot.
