The Durham Museum Open Free of Charge on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
The Durham Museum is proud to offer free admission to the community on Monday, January 16, 10AM-4PM, to celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Join the museum as we highlight MLK’s legacy and message of peace, tolerance, community service, and an inclusive, hopeful future for all.
In addition to the museum’s permanent exhibitions, guests can participate in an Omaha history scavenger hunt to win giveaways, contribute to a community art project, view a screening of the famous “I Have a Dream” speech and have a chance to enter to win a museum membership for the year.
New this year! The Malcolm X Foundation will host a table from 10AM-2PM and give out free copies of “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” by Alex Haley. Guests can also see a visual comparison and contrast of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. At 1PM, there will be a special musical performance by students from Nelson Mandela Elementary.
There is no fee for admission and NO registration necessary. No advanced tickets are required (or available) for this year’s event.
This free community day is made possible with generous support by U.S. Bank.
