Open Treasure is a new world-class exhibition experience now open at the heart of Durham Cathedral. Open Treasure gives visitors access to previously hidden spaces within the Cathedral’s magnificent Claustral buildings, showcasing the Cathedral’s collections so that they can be discovered and enjoyed by many more people of all ages.

The exhibition displayed in an unbroken timeline from the 9th century to the present. The journey begins in the Monks’ Dormitory and continues through a new state-of-theart Collections Gallery into the Great Kitchen, before visitors return to the Cloister via the Pilgrimage and Community Galleries in the Covey. These new exhibition spaces allow the Cathedral to display treasures from its internationally important collection with a dynamic rolling exhibition programme.

A collections gallery, hermetically sealed with airlock doors, provides carefully controlled environmental conditions for fragile items in their glass display cabinets – including fish bones found embedded in the floor of the great kitchen and unexpectedly worldly betting slips found in the monks’ quarters.
