About this event

Tickets to view the DLI Collection Gallery and Museum of Archaeology, situated within Palace Green Library, are free of charge.

The Durham Light Infantry (DLI) has an important place in the story of County Durham. Pay a visit to The DLI Collection Gallery: Courage, Comrades, Community and find out exactly what made the regiment so special.

The Museum of Archaeology allows you to explore the lives of the people who have lived in and visited Durham over the centuries through the tools and everyday objects they used, and the art and architecture they left behind to be rediscovered.

Palace Green Library is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, and also home to the World Heritage Site Visitor Centre, so don't forget to allow time to find out more about the site on your visit.

When selecting your ticket please choose a ticket for all members of your party including under 5's keeping current COVID restrictions in mind.

More information about how to find us and what you can see on your visit can be found by visiting Palace Green Library's Homepage
