Located just blocks from downtown Durham, the Museum of Life + Science is one of North Carolina’s top family destinations. Situated on 84-acres, our interactive science park includes a two-story science center, one of the largest butterfly conservatories on the East Coast and beautifully landscaped outdoor exhibits which are safe havens for rescued black bears, lemurs and endangered red wolves. Other popular attractions include more than 60 species of live animals, Dinosaur Trail, Hideaway Woods, and Into the Mist.

Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s days.
