Help us keep making history


Like many of you, The Durham Museum is adjusting to our new normal. The ongoing pandemic has deeply impacted the museum, but our mission to preserve and share our region’s history remains as vital now as ever. Though Union Station is closed, the museum continues to provide daily virtual field trips, restore our National Historic Landmark building, and care for the objects and photographs housed within its walls.

These are times to band together, and together we can keep making history.

Gifts of every size are both needed and appreciated and will sustain the important work taking place at the museum, especially during these challenging times.
