Omaha’s Durham Museum is set to open to the general public on Saturday after being open to members only for the past couple of weeks. Visitors are encouraged to wear masks and observe social distancing guidelines. Jessica Brummer, Director of Communications, said the museum gathered feedback from members to determine how to safely reopen. She said the biggest difference is guests will need to buy tickets online in advance for a specific date and time, so capacity is controlled. She said it was important for the museum to reopen.

“I think it’s an important part of life to have art, culture, and experiences like that. Especially right now, when things are so heavy and scary, that you can do that in a safe environment, I think provides people with a much-needed outlet right now," Brummer said. 

Brummer said the museum has installed protective shields and stepped-up cleaning procedures to protect guests. She said some hands-on attractions will still be closed. She said the traveling Pulitzer Prize Photograph exhibit, which arrived prior to the closing, has been extended until September 20.
