The Museum of Life and Science Sparks Curiosity in Durham

We recommend

  • The Carolina Wildlife Exhibit is a great place to learn about the animals in your own backyard. Dean enjoyed observing the animals in their habitats.
  • The Dinosaur Trail showcases the life-sized dinos kids can touch and climb on! There’s also an area to dig for real marine fossils.

Our Experience

Spanning more than 80 acres in the Bull City, The Museum of Life and Science is an imaginative wonderland for guests of all ages. Admission is $23 per adult, $18 per child, and guests two and under are free. Although entry isn’t free like a few of the other museums in the Triangle, it offers a one-of-a-kind experience that is worth the cost.

Outside the Museum of Life and Science

After exploring the expansive indoor exhibits, guests can venture outside to discover even more activities and views. A stroller is recommended for those with little walkers as the trails are long and can be tiring.
