Extended Hours and “$5 after 5PM” this Summer at The Durham Museum

The Durham Museum will extend its operating hours during the summer months (June, July and August) to allow guests more flexibility in planning their visits. The museum has also lifted its occupancy cap and advanced purchase of timed tickets is no longer required. Guests are still encouraged to purchase admission tickets in advance online at DurhamMuseum.org.  The museum may stagger entry into some exhibit spaces to accommodate larger groups.

Summer Hours are as follows:

               Monday, Wednesday-Saturday: 10AM-4PM

               Tuesday: 10AM-8PM

               Sunday: 12PM-4PM

The Durham is also bringing back “$5 after 5” to encourage guests to visit the museum after 5PM on Tuesday evenings throughout the summer.  From June 1-August 31, admission for all ages will be just $5 after 5PM on Tuesdays.  On Tuesday nights, the museum stays open until 8PM, giving guests the opportunity to visit late during the work week.  Normally, regular admission is $11 for adults, $8 for seniors and $7 for children 3-12. During this promotion, all admission levels will be granted the $5 admission and children 2 and under remain free.
