Beginning Feb. 2, 2021, Bellevue Public Library patrons will be able to check out a pass for their family to visit The Durham Museum in Omaha. The Durham’s new Library Pass Program will function like a family membership, with each pass granting admission for two adults and dependent children or grandchildren from the same household. However, users will not receive other museum discounts.
The Library Pass Program was created to provide more accessibility to regional families that may not otherwise be able to visit the museum or afford a membership. The pass program is made possible through a partnership with The Durham Museum and funding by the Friends of the Bellevue Public Library.
The Durham Museum in Omaha’s beautiful art deco Union Station is home to permanent exhibits that preserve Omaha’s vibrant history, traveling exhibits covering subjects ranging from history and culture, to science and industry, and many entertaining, educational, family-oriented activities.
Bellevue Public Library cardholders can check out the pass for one-time use. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, attendance capacity is limited. Those using the passes will need to call or email the Durham Museum to schedule their visit ahead of time. Families will be limited to one checkout per family per week. The checkout period is for 5 days, and passes are available on a first-come, first-served basis (no holds allowed). To search for the pass in the Library’s catalog and to check pass status, type in “Durham Museum Family Pass.” For additional information, please contact the library at 402-293-3157.
