Today not only is it a Grade I Listed Building, a Museum but it is also the home to University College, the founding College of Durham University and over 100 students are resident during term. The unique nature of the building means that, entrance to the public is by guided tours only. However, this allows a personal experience that brings history to life. The following tour times are a general guide as it is sometimes necessary to cancel tours at short notice due to University or commercial activities. During term-time: every afternoon at 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.During university vacations: daily 10am, 11am, 12am, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm. Please check the tour times with Palace Green Library to avoid disappointment « less

A new permanent gallery exploring the lives of the people who have lived in County Durham over the past 10,000 years has now opened at Durham University's Palace Green Library. Entry to the gallery is free for everyone. 'Living on the hills: 10,000 years of Durham' is the new home for Durham University's Museum of Archaeology. The new gallery uses the collections from the Museum of Archaeology alongside objects from across Durham University and other regional museums to explore the history and archaeology of the County. Gemma Lewis, gallery curator said: "Living on the Hills reveals the lives of the ordinary people who lived in or visited Durham over thousands of years using the tools, cups, bowls and the other everyday objects they used." "The displays highlight the art and architecture left behind to be rediscovered by modern archaeologists: amateur and professional. Visitors can see prehistoric objects found by chance at the turn of the century, Roman objects uncovered by Victorian antiquarians and Medieval objects found during 1970s archaeological excavations." The gallery includes a community archaeology space which will showcase the work of local archaeology and history groups from across the region. Community groups who are interested in working with the museum team to create future displays for this area are encouraged to get in touch. The development of this exhibition has been funded by the Sir James Knott Trust and conservation has been supported by the Arts Council. The refurbishment of the gallery space was funded by the Wolfson Foundation. In addition to the Museum of Archaeology collections, objects for the exhibition have been generously lent by the Dean and Chapter of Durham Cathedral, the Bowes Museum, Hartlepool Cultural Services, Tees Archaeology and Preston Park Museum, and the School of Biological Sciences at Durham University. « less
