Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – FREE ADMISSION!
Monday, January 20, 2020

The Durham Museum is proud to offer free admission to the community on January 20 from 10AM to 5PM to celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Join the museum and members of the community as we highlight MLK’s legacy and message of peace, tolerance, community service, and an inclusive, hopeful future for all.

In addition to our exhibitions, we will have special activities for families to commemorate this important day:

  • Join us in our reading nook for story time throughout the day.  Examples include Martin’s Big Words, Courageous People who Changed the World and I am MLK Jr.
  • Watch the “I Have a Dream” speech in the Mutual of Omaha Theater.
  • Enjoy children’s activities on the Platform including a Lego challenge and handprint craft.
  • Plus, see artifacts from the March on Washington and the Civil Rights Movement in our exhibit Louder than Words: Rock, Power & Politics. Examples include guitars played by Odetta and Josh White, handwritten lyrics from Bob Dylan and personal objects from Nina Simone, Sam Cooke and James Brown.

Free admission and programming supported by the Weitz Family Foundation.
