Meet the Monk at Durham Cathedral Museum

Tuesday 26 July to Tuesday 30 August

On Tuesdays in the summer holidays meet the monk roaming the museum to learn more about how the medieval monks of Durham Cathedral once lived, cooked, slept and studied in the spaces that today house the museum.

Find the monk in Durham Cathedral Museum between 10am and 3.30pm on Tuesdays from 26 July to 30 August. This experience is included in admission for the museum.

While you’re visiting the museum see the new exhibition, Meet Saint Bede, which illuminates Bede’s life and legacy through remarkable objects like a cast of Bede's skull.
