Oriental Museum

The Oriental Museum evolved in conjunction with the teaching of oriental languages at Durham University and is completely devoted to the art and archaeology of the regions of Northern Africa, Near and Middle East, as well as Asia. It boasts a unique collection of Asian artefacts and there are plenty of activities like dressing up or colouring to keep children amused.
