  • This was an amazing afternoon out with my young son. The lady on the desk had amazing knowledge on Egypt. She was so fascinating I wanted to take her to the pub for lunch! It cost me and my son £2.25 ...  more »
  • Fabulous little place near university buildings on outskirts of city, with free parking and very reasonable entry fee (£1.50 pp). Helpful and friendly staff, interesting and varied exhibits from China...  more »
  • This museum is one of Durhams Hidden Gems, part of me wants this to stay this way, so people keep away, but then that would stop people having the experience of this oriental gem  more »

  • The museum is very well set out the lighting is subdued and calming. The exhibits are interesting, beautiful and amazing. Ancient cultures displaying fine craftmenship that tell stories and tell us about their culture. I like the quirkiness of new exhibits from the 20th and 21st century. This week there was a photographic exhibition about the thousands of Chinese men who helped Britain and France in WW1. There is a small cafe and a small shop.
  • Wonderful place to visit. Full of ethnic wonders. Inexpensive entry. Well worth a visit.
  • Fascinating place full of wonderful artifacts. Very good for kids too.
  • Has an amazing mummy and all of the canopic jars and a great collection.
  • A gem of a museum! Didn't have the kids with us this time but there's lots of good stuff for kids.
