Great spot. Packed with information. Wonderful history. Three stars because it deserves a far larger building and more historical data and value on civil rights actions, and injustices against minorities in the past. Give us the real history.

A lovely space that is jam packed with information about Durham. I appreciate that it had activities for all age levels, so my toddler could play while my husband and I learned more about our city! The ladies working the desk were very friendly and helpful.

What an incredible opportunity to learn about the specific events that have helped to shape Durham's history! This may be Durham's best kept secret!

One word sums up this cozy, quaint history museum: DOPE. Loved the place so hard, enjoyed the exhibits and was also assisted by some of the finest Curators, Kristi and Nolan. They kept me on my toes with amazing conversation and filled my big head with some legit knowledge. Yo Durham, give these two a raise 💪🏼🇺🇸💯

Cute little Museum. Someone you know may be apart of one or more of the exhibits.

Very educational . Being that I'm born and raised in the city of Durham I knew the history but visually seeing how the city of Durham has changed its clear that this is much needed I encourage everyone to pay a small visit
