As a Museum member or visitor, you pay for the great experience you have here - right? Well, not completely. Every visit is subsidized by public support or private contributions.

The Museum's $5.4 million annual operating budget comes from Durham County (about 20%), State of North Carolina (about 6%) and all other sources that we call "earned income" (74%) - admissions, memberships, fees, contributions, gift shop, train tickets, etc.

For next year, Durham County has increased operating support for the Museum by $143,000. Our State support remains the same as last year. So if you know a County or State person, tell them "thanks" for their support!

Yeah my family goes all the time. The museum doesn't get enough love. I figure now that I'm much more active in photography I'll need a place for the best images, and I'm sure there are many others on Flickr with NC MLS images to share.

It's a fantastic museum, and I'm glad to see it's getting additional support from Durham County. I'm from out-of-town (Richmond, VA), but I'm going to ensure that the NC MLS is on our to-do list anytime we visit family in Durham.

Thanks for the great museum and for the Flickr group!
