Visit - Rental Info

This unique venue is ideal for small to medium-sized special events.

The Museum of Durham History offers six wonderful interactive exhibits, three of which rotate on a regular basis. Equipped with one public restroom (handicapped-accessible) and a small prep kitchen (full-size refrigerator, microwave oven, and sink), the interior space is bright with tall windows on three sides.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner meetings of 10-20, receptions up to 50, craft displays, book or poetry readings are perfect for this space. A large, built-in front desk counter is ideal for check-in, name badging, and food/beverage display. Additionally there is a large, outdoor Gazebo with covered roof. Weather permitting, the Gazebo is well suited for an expanded attendance, as well as for small outdoor concerts, art shows, etc.

By renting the museum, you are securing a unique venue for your event and supporting Durham’s local history museum at the same time.
