seasonal Workshops

Offered during summer and winter breaks

The Durham Museum offers a variety of summer workshops that are unique, fun and educational. Workshops are ideal for school district summer/winter break programs, daycares, summer camps and more. They are available for groups of ten or more children, and ages 5-12 are recommended. All workshops are customized to the size of your group.

Workshop Reservation Process

In order to accommodate the scheduling needs of all groups, we will customize the arrival and departure times for your group. Please plan on approximately 1 hour for a group of 15 students and 1 hour and 30 minutes for a group of 15-60 students before beginning to arrange the details of your trip.

All workshops are $6 per child. The museum admits one staff member or teacher per ten children at no additional charge. Reservations should be made at least two weeks in advance.
