Field Trips
Thanks for your interest in visiting The Durham Museum, where history is built to last. We’re here to meet your group’s field trip needs in two great ways – Self-guided (our signature ComeAnytime! field trips) and School Group Programs with education experience and learning tools for classroom teachers. Both opportunities are available for the same great student rate of $5 per child (in groups of 10 or more).

About Field Trips to the Durham Museum

School group programs are offered Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Check-in is at 9:45 a.m. and programming begins with orientation in the Truhlsen Lecture Hall at 10 a.m.

Educators accompanying children and youth receive content and curriculum packages outlining primary attractions in both permanent and traveling exhibits.
