  • This museum occupies what I suppose is an old church. It is really rather small and too cramped so It is not the easiest museum to navigate but there is lots to see of local interest. Helpful staff. 
  • Durham cathedral is an old church in durham. it is one of the oldest churches. The architecture is well preserved. 
  • it's quaint and provincial no doubt but it gives a beautiful taste of Durham culture and a real insight into the history. Perhaps don't expect anything too grand or exciting but be ready to learn.

  • If you want a glimpse into the history of picturesque Durham, then this is the place for you. When I went, the counters were staffed by archeology students, perfect for a county like Durham.
