There are several tour opportunities for varying prices, check website. Fascinating unique tour. Staff are friendly and seem truly interested in the animals. The place is tucked away. There is a wow! affect. Better for older children and adults. Educational experience. Make reservations early. We had a 9:30 am reservation. Can be very warm as most things outdoor in NC.... 更多
The Duke Lemur Center is a definite must when visiting Durham, NC. The location was so beautiful. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and said a lot about each lemur. There was such an amazing variety of lemurs to see and learn about, you never got bored. The lemur center is one of my most favorites places in the world.... 更多
World’s largest and most diverse collection of lemurs – Earth’s most threatened group of mammals – outside of Madagascar. Variety of public and private tours available. Reservation required off their web site. Unique, interesting and fun experience for all ages.
This place is great, the lemurs are so much fun to see, so exotic. The staff is very knowledgeable and happy to share their stories . Highly recommend the more expensive tour, but the regular one is good too. Book in advance as tours are very popular.

Tour guide could not answer questions about lemurs asked by attendees saying she had only been there a few months. Her general spiel seemed to be about the personalities of... 更多
I went to Duke as an undergrad and never saw the Lemur Center. I was missing out. The tour guide did an amazing job taking us through the Center and talking about each of the species of lemurs, including their lives at the Center as well as their habitats and habits in Madagascar. The nocturnal house is a highlight. Plus,... 更多
The drive in to the center through Duke forest can be a Jurassic moment if the lemurs are making noise. The center has been wonderfully upgraded, mostly for the lemurs. The visit is better for the other primates (us) with better walkways and more organized holding pens. The staff guides are very informative and know each animal by name. Lemurs... 更多
