October 2 – 6, 2023

Join us for a celebration of area educators, including our 20th annual Teachers’ Night on October 6! Registration is now open!

Attention educators! The Durham Museum invites you to take part in Teachers’ Week — a celebration full of teacher appreciation and helpful resources. The special week will culminate with the 20th annual Teachers’ Night, where educators will get a chance to take part in a resource fair, enjoy food and prizes, and explore the museum, including a sneak peek at The Durham’s fall exhibition, Julia Child: A Recipe for Life. We hope to see you there!


Win Treats for Your School: Teachers who register for the event below by September 1 will automatically enter their school in a chance to win goodies for the entire staff. One school will be chosen each week in September.

Teacher Appreciation Visits: October 2-5, the museum will surprise one teacher each day in their classroom with a special prize package as a thank you for registering for Teachers’ Night. This could include gift cards, flowers, balloons, treats, classroom supplies and more!

  • PLEASE NOTE: We encourage all teachers and educators to register for Teachers’ Night and we hope to see you there! However, our early registration prize chances are limited to Omaha-area registrants.
