This small museum packs a lot! Many people who made Durham what it is today are cited, from many years ago and modern folks. They have an interactive display with many year buttons so you can see Durham across the years.

This tiny stand alone building is almost easy to miss. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in amazing history. From its beginning, this museum tells visitors all about the incredible history of Durham, N.C. The staff are polite and helpful. Donations are accepted at this free museum.

This is a great place to learn about the history of Durham and explore the stories of the folks who lives here. It’s also got some great spaces for kids to play and learn, so it’s great for the whole family.

Small but very interesting museum, Great activities for children. A visit won't fill your afternoon but it's a worthy diversion.

Fun place to learn more about Durhams history and talk to some very knowledgable ladies and gents. Situated in what was once the bus station the museum is accessible, small but full of facts about a fascinating city and its history. Opposite the Amtrak station and steps from downtown, this was my first stop and I was glad it was. I came out a lot wiser about the Durham of old but with some knowledge of where to visit during my day trip. Fascinating place especially if you love history.
