Omaha Public Library will partner with Omaha Children’s Museum to offer free museum admission to library patrons. Beginning September 4, all branches will have tickets available. 

“This partnership is going to have a big impact on families in our community,” said Lindy Hoyer, Omaha Children’s Museum Executive Director. “More families than ever before will have access to our daily programs and exhibits.”

Each of OPL’s 12 locations will have 100 single-use tickets for checkout while supplies last during the following periods:

  • September 4 - November 30, 2018
  • December 1, 2018 - February 28, 2019
  • March 1 - May 25, 2019 

OPL cardholders ages 18 and over who are Douglas County residents or have a non-resident paid membership to OPL are eligible to check out the tickets. Due to the great demand and limited supply, tickets cannot be held or reserved. Only one ticket per library card and customer can be issued per distribution period. Each ticket admits up to four people and must include at least one adult and one child.

Omaha Children’s Museum joins Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium and Fontenelle Forest as the third community organization to offer free admission through Omaha Public Library.

“Partnering with these outstanding destinations not only adds tremendous value to your library card, but it also helps families who need it the most to enjoy some of the best of what our community has to offer,” said OPL Executive Director Laura Marlane.

To see which OPL locations have tickets available, visit omahalibrary.org and search for “Omaha Children’s Museum.” You may also call any OPL branch location to check availability. This opportunity was made possible with support from the Friends of Omaha Public Library.
