Durham Heritage Centre and Museum tells the story of the City of Durham from medieval times to the present day. The museum is situated in the redundant Church of St Mary-le-Bow, close to the World Heritage Site of the Cathedral and Castle.

A visit to the Museum with its stimulating exhibitions, models, hands-on activities and videos is the perfect introduction to Durham. Displays describe the origins and development of the city and there are many fascinating objects that illustrate everyday life from the 17th century to the present day. The Museum is County Durham's only brass rubbing centre.

There is also an exciting programme of activities for school visits and frequent temporary exhibitions.
