Please note that all tours are by appointment only, and that you must have tour reservations to see the animals. You can explore general + premium tour options via our tours homepage – we offer tours for all ages, budgets, and backgrounds!
Tours often book weeks in advance, and generally we cannot accommodate walk-in visitors. You are, however, always welcome to call us just in case we have tour openings remaining on a particular day: (919) 401-7240. It never hurts to check, especially if you’re open to multiple types of tours!
The gift shop is open to the public without appointment from 9:00 a.m. ’til 4:00 p.m. seven days a week. Parking is simple and free.
Address and directions
We’re located at 3705 Erwin Road in Durham, less than 10 minutes from Duke’s West Campus. Click the ‘Directions to DLC’ link below to view step-by-step directions to the Lemur Center from Duke, Durham, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and Greensboro.
Using a gps or Google Maps? Occasionally these will direct visitors to the gated forestry entrance off Cornwallis Road. Please do not use the Cornwallis entrance, as Cornwallis Road is closed for construction. Instead, please follow the directions given in the “Directions to DLC” link above, which will bring you in via our main entrance on Erwin Road.
If you have questions at any time, please call (919) 401-7240. The Lemur Landing staff will be happy to help!
