This highly anticipated event is packed full of opportunities including:

  • Exhibitors sharing their programming and education support for the region
  • Networking and free classroom resources
  • Information about The Durham’s upcoming exhibits and events

The Durham Museum Teachers’ Night program began in 2004 and was originally modeled on a similar event offered by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., of which The Durham is a leading affiliate. Since its founding, Teachers’ Night has grown into one of The Durham Museum’s primary educational outreach initiatives, drawing nearly 1,000 educators each year.
The Durham Museum Teachers’ Night is sponsored by First Nebraska Credit Union, Metropolitan Community College, Nebraska State Education Association and Metropolitan Utilities District.
