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
One of the taxidermy animals in our current exhibition is an owl! We would like you to create a Twit Twooing owl covered in beautiful feathers to take away with you. Which other birds can you see in our exhibition?
We need to help conserve our world for all of the creatures living here. Use recycled materials to make your own creature inspired by one of the animals in our exhibition Wild! Make them as weird, wonderful and wild as can be!
