Palace Green Library, in the heart of Durham city, holds Durham University's special collections. Our galleries are open to all and display treasures spanning millennia and the globe.
What's On View All Events
During June in Durham we have so much going on, from the Summer festival to our Wild exhibition. Get messy and make Wildlife prints, from butterfly wings to fox's paws to leaping salmon's scales.
Join our students from the University's MA in Museum and Artefact Studies program to learn about their experiences in installing the 'Prehistoric Pioneers' exhibition.
