Preparing to welcome you back
Our museums, galleries and Botanic Garden will remain closed until early 2021.
The health and safety of our staff and visitors is our top priority. We will only reopen when we’re sure we have all the necessary safety measures in place. We will be using the closed period to carry out improvements at all our sites.
While we are closed we will continue to:
Develop new online exhibitions and learning resources for users to engage with from anywhere in the world
Catalogue and digitise more of our collections and share them online via our online database Discover
Develop and deliver university teaching programmes, adapting them to an online/blended approach
Continue to support students and community through digital volunteering opportunities and virtual placements
Support academic and community researchers worldwide using our subject expertise and knowledge of the collections
Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to welcoming you back when it is possible.
Please note: The gallery is curretly closed for refurbishment.
The Gallery is located within the historic buildings of Palace Green Library, in the heart of Durham city. Entry to the gallery is free.
You can also explore the other exhibitions, see the historic libraries and research the collections. Plan your visit and find out about our facilities.
