Its only small but there are lots of really interesting items on display - organised according to country. The items are beautifully presented on separate floors / or part of floor per country.
The 'write ups' of the artefacts are on laminated sheets so you can read them easily whilst referring to even the smallest object. It was nice to be able to sit to read and look at the items on display.
I particularly went to see the Egyptian exhibits but found that those from other countries were so fascinating too.
They have catered for the ' less abled' very well - I have a bad hip and standing for a length of time is difficult but I found it easy to look around the museum.
I would return to this museum next time I visit the area.
I was parked in the local 'park and ride' and it is only a short walk to the museum and the entrance fee was a nominal 75p for senior citizen.
If in central Durham and you want to come out to the nearby ( park and ride) car park on the bus, for an easy walk to the museum, then take the PR2 Howlands bus and it doesn't take long. The fare was £2.
Staff very friendly.
