Get Involved - Help Us Evolve with the New Normal
Thanks to your generous support, the Museum of Durham History has continued to bring together the community throughout 2021 by sharing stories, creating memories and offering diverse perspectives about our unique and inspiring history.
This past year presented a thoughtful challenge: how could we bring people together to have engaging conversations about history when we are re-emerging, yet still living in a socially distanced present?
The answer was actually very simple: we became a true “Museum Without Walls”. History is within each of us and in the world all around us, so we welcomed each of you to become part of the MoDH and share your stories with us both in person and remotely through special events, digital story portals, virtual exhibits and community activities.
Here are some of our highlights as we navigated through the last 18 months:
- More Than Just A Game exhibit and opening (visit the brand new virtual exhibit here!)
- 150 Faces of Durham in-person and virtual exhibit (learn more here)
- Royal Ice Cream sign commemoration (view event highlights here)
- Votes for Suffrage: Women in Durham Politics (visit the online exhibit here)
- A Creative Protest: MLK Comes to Durham (visit the online exhibit here)
- From Tobacco Market to Innovation Hub: Durham’s Central Park Neighborhood reopening exhibit and summer of public programs like…
- Kids Craft Event
- Durham History Trivia at Fullsteam Brewery
- Movie Night at Durham Central Park
- Hutchins Garage Tour
Events like this would not be possible without you!
Please help us continue to offer innovative and collaborative exhibits and experiences to our community by donating via the form below.
As our gift to you, any donation of $50 or more will receive a bag of delicious, locally made Ginger Snaps from our neighbors at Ninth Street Bakery as well as one of our very own MoDH t-shirts.
Any donation of $100 or more will also receive a very special tote bag made using banners from previous exhibits. We have a limited supply of these available and they are definitely one-of-a-kind gifts just in time for holiday shopping!
Thank you again for your support and we look forward to seeing you soon!
