We missed the butter-churning demonstration, but we made the parade. So get ye off the couch and down to the free grand opening of the Museum of Durham History is open until 5 p.m. today, with music, food trucks and other events.

Regular hours begin Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended times on Third Fridays. Admission is free. The museum is in the old DATA bus station, 500 W. Main St.—a great reuse for that building.
