Countdown to 2023 at The Durham Museum!

3, 2, 1….Happy “Noon” Year! The Durham Museum will host its annual Noon Year’s Eve celebration on Saturday, December 31st from 10AM-2PM. Guests will get an early start to their New Year’s celebration at this family-friendly event. Entertainment will include live music by Dinosaur “Dino” O’Dell and the T-Rex All-Stars. Create your own party hat, participate in a museum-wide scavenger hunt and grab your friends and our fun props to make a memory in the 2023 photo booth. The party will end with a bang, when guests do the bubble-wrap stomp and thousands of balloons drop from the Suzanne and Walter Scott Great Hall’s 60 ft. ceiling. And no New Year’s Eve party is complete without a dance party!
