Standing tall and proud in the center of downtown Durham, 21c Museum Hotel is a multi-venue contemporary art museum offering more than 10,500 square feet of art-filled exhibition and event space, a full-service boutique hotel with luxurious guest rooms, and home to the Counting House restaurant. Stay with us and the iconic Fuschia Penguin.

The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the design team preserved the foyer’s green marble and silver leaf ceiling as well as the terrazzo floors throughout.
