Hastings Museum: A Great Escape Membership |
Home » Membership


Your membership to Hastings Museum entitles you to many great benefits and helps bring nationally recognized traveling/temporary exhibits and great films to Hastings!

There are many reasons for repeat visits to the Hastings Museum. We have a rotating calendar of temporary exhibits and a full schedule of films, programs, and special events. As children grow, each visit brings new observations, experiences, and questions. Our newest exhibit, the Nature Nook, perhaps provides the best argument for repeat visits to the Hastings Museum—play. We now boast hands-on play areas on all three floors!

Just choose the level that’s right for you and fill out the registration form(.pdf). Drop the form off at the Museum or mail it in. Your membership is activated once payment is received.  We will mail your membership card to your address.

You can also call 402-461-2399 and use a credit card to start your Museum membership.
