Learning discoveries direct to your classroom

As part of The Durham Museum’s Blended Learning Initiative, we invite students of all ages to watch history come alive through our virtual connections. This opportunity allows you to connect with the museum when it fits best with your current unit of study.  Our free online content is shared monthly with educators on our Blended Learning Listserv. Join us today and as we take your 21st Century learners on a trip to the past!

Ever wonder what something was used for, or why is has the shape it does? Join us each month as we explore different artifacts from around the museum.
