Community Free Day at The Durham Museum
In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Monday, January 18, 2021
The Durham Museum is proud to offer free admission to the community on Monday, January 18. Join the museum as we highlight MLK’s legacy and message of peace, tolerance, community service, and an inclusive, hopeful future for all. The museum will be open from 10AM-4PM (the last timeslot for entry in is at 2:30PM).
In addition to the museum’s permanent exhibitions, we will have special activities for families to commemorate this important day:
• An interactive scavenger hunt
• View a screening of the famous “I Have a Dream” speech
• Contribute to a community art project
• Have a chance to enter to win a museum membership for the year
There is no fee for admission, but advanced registration is required, and space is limited. Each person visiting must reserve a ticket in advance online or over the phone. This allows us to safely welcome guests and keep within our guidelines for capacity of our venue. This is the only method for admission at this time. Register online (at link above) or call 402-444-5071. When registering, please select a time between 10AM and 2:30PM for your admission entry/check-in time. The museum closes at 4PM.
**Because capacity is limited, we ask that members and frequent visitors consider allowing those who may not otherwise be able to visit the museum to enjoy this opportunity.**
As a reminder, guests are required to wear face masks while visiting the museum, though optional for ages 4 and under.
